Where to Eat This Weekend in Los Angeles: Maison Giraud

Written by

Jonathan Gold visits Chef Alain Giraud’s latest venture in the Pacific Palisades. Known for his high end cooking at places like Bastide and most recently Anisette, Giraud is taking a simpler approach at Maison Giraud offering dishes like soupe au pistou, homemade duck terrine, chicken “catherine” and seared scallops with braised leeks. Perhaps the best time of day to visit is breakfast where you can sample Pastry Chef Noubar Yessayan’s outstanding croissants and pastries.
