LA Weekly's Description
A platter of the right kinds of cheese, accompanied by the appropriate condiments, could probably start a party all on its own, the splendid ooze of ripe raw-milk Epoisse tangoing with a flowery El Porfaio, a creamy Fourme d’Ambert knocking heads with an aggressive, goaty crottin de Chavignol, urged on by a scrap of imported honeycomb or a dab of orange-scented carrot jam. We do not, after all, know what tricks beneficial bacteria play when we have our backs turned. But the oddly christened Ludobites, a collaboration between Breadbar, the Beverly Hills Cheese Shop and chef Ludovic Lefebvre on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights until mid-December, is the Hyde Lounge or Playboy Mansion of cheese, perfectly ripened A-list curds from all around the world, curated and garnished by Lefebvre, a French dude whose food has up to now been accessible only to people with the several hundred dollars it took to pay for a meal at L’Orangerie or Bastide.
By the end of the night, lubricated with bottles of good wine that you have brought yourself (Breadbar has no alcohol license), you will probably end up swapping cheese and bits of things like skirt steak or Lefebvre’s serrano-spiked “brocomole” with the people at the next table or howling over the jolt of chile in the chocolate mousse, pausing only for a moment of quiet contemplation when you realize how well your bottle of old Cote Rotie goes with the truffled Moliterno sheep cheese from Sardinia.
Tips from foursquare
Featured in WhereLA.com's "Where to Brunch in LA." Savor Parisian specialities like quiche Lorraine, Croque Madame on Breadbar’s signature pan de mie bread, and French toast with housemade brioche.
Breadbar goes way further then sandwiches with its musclebound dishes such as Molson Beer and Cheese Soup with Friseé, lardons, and Bacon Vinaigrette or Peanut Butter and Jelly Three Ways.
Attend Hatchi guest chef series.
During the weekend, it's the only Breadbar location that serves pretzel croissants.
A little pricey for soup but it was good. Soup of the day: Butternut Squash
