Wednesday. A perfect evening for a girls night out. Long work week deserves good food and drinks. My friends and I decided to check out a new restaurant that opened up in Downtown LA called Towne Food & Drink. For a restaurant that just opened up few weeks ago, the place was cozied up with people. The space itself kind of reminds me a Bottega Louie in downtown, but definitely not that loud. The ambiance was a jazzy and upbeat, bright and spacious.
Hungry as always, we ordered a feast for 3.
For appetizers, we ordered Line Caught Tuna Tartar which was ok. A tad fishy for my taste. For the main course and sides to share, we ordered what it seemed like Thanksgiving feast!
Crispy Pork Shank for 2
Sweet & Sour cabbage, whole grain mustard spatzle with mustard jus. I was shocked how huge it was. It really felt like we ordered a Thanksgiving turkey for the table. The pork was tender and juicy. The meat just fell off the bone. The accompanying corn and spatzle a perfect match for the pork.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
With Tamarid, bacon and apple. I absolutely love this!
Very rich and creamy version of Mac n Cheese. It’s unique but can only have 2 or 3 pieces due to its creamy decadence.
Creamed Kale and Rapini.
Creamy. Plenty to share!
The Shank Before & After
TTo finish off with something sweet, we ordered a Blueberry Creamcheese Donut. Score!
Definitely a place to check out again.
