Citrus at Social Changes to Bistro Menu – Los Angeles

Friday, August 15th, 2008

UPDATE: Alain Giraud replaces Michel Richard who took a walk on the troubled restaurant Social in Hollywood.

The food, service and space are refined, but unfortunately, Michel Richard has other businesses in Washington D.C., which are very successful and taking his main thrust, here he is little more than a name on the door and not the inspiration of the restaurant. The resident chef, Remi Lauvand has been let go, replaced by Chef Omri Aflalo and as business has not been exactly brisk, a new menu has been installed based on Michel Richard’s bistro favorites. Starters are mostly in the $10-$14 range while main courses are in the $20’s. The menu items are interesting and may hit the “sweet spot” during these lean times.
