LA Weekly's Description

Neal Fraser, best known for his restaurant Grace, has long been a bwana of complexity in fourth-stage Los Angeles restaurants, mixing so many national idioms on a plate that his customers are never quite sure whether they are reading a menu or looking at a departures board at LAX. But at his diner BLD, freed of the formal requirements of the destination-restaurant menu, he turns out to be a brilliant short-order cook, churning out exemplary, drippy hamburgers and moistening sandwiches with aïoli, using house-made smoky ketchup where he can and Heinz 57 where he must, and dropping coleslaw bombs like a 40-year fry cook with canola oil in his veins. BLD is a useful restaurant, open for quick breakfasts of croissants and cappuccino; for sybaritic brunches of fluffy ricotta pancakes and eggs Benedict; for salady lunches and meaty feasts, for serious date-night dinners and after-movie snacks. At its best, BLD's menu of fried-egg sandwiches is the kind of cheap-ingredient food that cooks make for each other when they think nobody else is paying attention.

    My favorite place for breakfast. Have the ricotta pancakes or anything with eggs. -Mark Peel, Top Chef

    Simple, well-executed food is the draw for locals at this restaurant. Come here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner with your family for fare that is made from the best ingredients around. Try the panini!
