LA Weekly's Description

If Godzilla decided to explore her feminine side, she might be tempted to wear Tiara's giant, glittery range hood on her head, just the sort of Audrey Hepburn–esque touch Mothra might find attractive. Tiara, Fred Eric's Dr. Seuss–flavored Fashion District restaurant, shoots the girly aesthetic up with steroids. Eric practically invented the hyper­eclectic Los Angeles restaurant, and his Asian-tinged, pan-Mediterranean menu is painted in 17 shades of farmers-market salad. You won't find fried potatoes, but you will find crunchy sticks of chickpea fritters that have all the sensations of a french fry. There are bubbly, skateboard-shaped lengths of flatbread served with curried squash, preserved lemons and harissa, and a selection of “Freshwiches”: rice-paper rolls stuffed with spice-tinged “Thai” cobb salad, with grilled tuna and vegetables, or with shrimp, mangoes and Granny Smith apples. Low-carb and fat-free, Freshwiches are big with the perpetually fasting fashionistas who comprise a big part of the clientele. I suspect there is not a single peculiar diet or system of culinary belief the kitchen is not prepared to handle. See full review.

    Thi's pancetta-spiked take on the Vietnamese caramelized sea bass clay pot is surpassed only by the bass heads and tails, crisped on the grill, served with sweetened fish sauce for dipping.

    Tuesday Night is Pot Pie Night. Malaysian Curry Chicken Pie is Fantastic, a pie is a full meal for 2 people or split with sides for 4 people.

    Must try the chicken curry pot pie! Garlic and green onion crispy pastry shell. Carrot and purple potatoes, yumm. Perfect for 2!
