Brentwood was Belwood’s 1st location after the Bel-Air Country Market near Moraga Drive. Founded by a Vietnamese family, the two brothers were taught their bakery skills in Paris.Their croissants are marvelous as is everything else they serve including an excellent cold chocolate drink. Service is speedy and efficient. These bakeries are a must to visit while in Los Angeles.

Opening in August, 2010, Chi Dynasty, Studio City, is the second restaurant for owner Jonathan Chi.
His first Chi Dynasty location has been successfully serving Chinese cuisine to Los Feliz area patrons since 1983.

Both restaurants are attractive and quiet enough for conversation, a nice change from many of the noisy
dining spots one usually encounters these days.

My server, Charlene, was extremely pleasant and efficient.   Chinese Chicken Salad, their signature dish and tossed
tableside, was delicious and a refreshing departure from the usual sweet dressing one usually finds on this salad.

The Hot and Sour Soup arrived ‘spicy’ as ordered, and was thick and flavorful.  It was served with small
vessels of hot oil, vinegar and soy sauce, to be added for personalized taste.  I thought this was a nice touch.
Szechwan Beef, also spicy as ordered, contained lots of beef, and like the other 2 dishes, included more than
enough for two large portions.

The restaurant is a good choice for a reasonably priced business meeting, or personal lunch or dinner.
