without a doubt, bottega louie has got to be one of my favorite go to spots in Los Angeles. a few posts ago i did a rant on their notoriously known macarons…but in this post i’ll be elaborating more on their actual food entrees. i’ve eaten here more times than any other restaurant i’ve ever posted about. if i were to sit here and post a comment on each and every item i’ve ever had at bottega, this would definitely be theeeee worlds longest blog post, so i’ll just list a few of my favorites——
portobello mushroom fries—-aka every mushroom lovers dream. this starter /side item is so so so so so so (x1000) GOOOD. if you’ve got a thing for ‘shrooms, these will have your tastebuds rejoicing. SO DELICIOUS.
asaparagus with poached egg—it’s exactly what it says it is. very simple dish and if you’re skilled enough in the kitchen to know how to poach an egg + boil up some asparagus—this can easily be made at home. i would’ve never have guessed the two together are like a match made in heaven, but it works! in addition, this dish is topped with freshly grated cheese.
salmon- their salmon is prepared in parchment paper with veggies and both times i’ve ordered this dish it has come out perfect.
pizza- i’ve tried most of their pizza options and my favorite thus far is their mushroom pizza, but in general their pizzas are straight up good stufff & not too terribly priced for the portion size ( i mean, it’s not little ceasers’ $5 carryout deal, but then again ingredients and topping options are obviously a million times better)
one of the greatest things about bottega louie is their hours…they’re practically open all day, every day. from as early as 6AM to as late as 12AM—their hours are convenient for anyone’s schedule!
in addition to all that good stuff, bottega louie’s prices aren’t too too bad. taking into consideration their ambiance, quality of food, and service—-the prices here are actually quite reasonable ESPECIALLY for their location being smack dab in the middle of downtown LA.
if ever in the area, i highly suggest you check this place out…and who knows…for as much as i frequent this spot…you’ll probably see me here, just make sure you come and say “Hi” and “thank you” —-you know, for the recommendation and all ;D
