Executive chef Raphael Francois, who earned two Michelin stars in London, says he didn’t want a fancy, fine-dining feeling at Tesse. Instead, he focused on house-made charcuterie and sharing family recipes he learned growing up in Belgium and France. During dineL.A., you can try a four-course dinner for $99 that offers impeccable choices, such as: caviar toast, scallops and truffle, white truffle linguini, blue crab spaghetti, New York Strip and white truffle cheesecake.

Lucques’ rustic venue was originally the Harold Lloyd Estate carriage house, but its superb culinary talent – Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne – really put it on the map. The falafel burger sounds delightful for lunch as does lamb shank stew for dinner. View Menu
