BLD Restaurant

BLD Restaurant

n Los Angeles, it's hard to find that in-between restaurant. Something that has good atmosphere and an eclectic menu without the ridiculous prices. Thankfully, the owners of Grace opened BLD last week. "Breakfast Lunch Dinner" is adding much needed sophistication to it's neighborhood (a few blocks from The Grove) without inflating the cost of basic bites. For about $12 an entree, you can get everything from a hemp seed crusted tofu salad...to a traditional pork burger...to a fabulous exotic cheese plate (that includes a white truffle selection!). The space is beautifully designed with warm palates and soft lighting (major improvement from when the spot was home to Opaline and Red). The acoustics manage to keep the volume at a bearable level with under-the-radar music playing in the background. With few breakfast options in the area (achem...Toast's bland menu and club-like list to get a table), BLD will bring much relief to those wanting a good meal at any time of the day...without the drama.
