For all of you West-Siders who have reveled in Venice’s 3 Square Café and delighted in Santa Monica’s Rockenwagner Bakery…you now have a new reason to celebrate!
Just this week Chef Hans Röckenwagner has opened his newest restaurant-Café Röckenwagner-at the new BW Building in Brentwood and has created a place where you can get your almond croissant in the morning and your avocado crostini at night.
Here is a look at my top picks from 7:30 AM-10 PM…not necessarily in that order 🙂
A 3 Square Meal Cocktail: Blend of Soju, Ginger Beer, and Lime
A look at the Bakery Side, with pastries created by famed pastry chef Cesar Bermudez Cifuentes of The Bazaar by José Andrés.
The Avocado Crostini
Soy Glazed Octopus with a drizzle of basil oil
Roasted Vegetable Salad
Breakfast for Dinner–served at all times
Mussels with chorizo
Short Rib-perfected just last week
Desserts: too many good ones to choose a favorite, but I am partial to Budinos…
To quote Chef Röckenwagner himself, “he did not set out to reinvent the culinary pantheon, but to serve good honest food at a good value”.
Café Röckenwagner is that Modern City Bistro that just might transform the landscape of the Wilshire/Barrington Corner.
