The Little Door – The Most Romantic Restaurant in West Hollywood
By Samantha Dockser
The Little Door, located in West Hollywood, features the best authentic Mediterranean cuisine. Hidden behind a not so little door, is the most elegant patio, adorned with twinkling lights and hanging ivy. The perfect spot for any intimate evening, The Little Door will have you swooning.
With an expansive wine and cocktail menu, The Little Door’s libations will certainly work to get you in the mood. I enjoyed a delicious Moscow Mule made with Beluga Vodka, ginger beer, and limejuice.
And you won’t be hungry for long with a menu like this one. The Little Door offers a wide variety of divine starters, ranging from Duck Fois Gras, to Steamed Black Mussels, to their Charcuterie Board. I would the Charcuterie Board is not to be missed. Served with toasted baguettes, this plate comes with an assortment of salumi and cheese, which will leave you reminding yourself not to fill up on your starter.
For the main course, The Little Door, the Grilled Filet Mingon is a stand out. Served with herb roasted Cipollini onions and an aged balsamic demi-glace, this dish is heavenly. It also comes with fingerling potato frite, zucchini tian, and tomato provencale. I was stealing frite off my boyfriend’s plate all night long.
Another highlight on the main menu is the Fingerling Potato Crusted Northern Halibut. It is served with a tomato pernod sauce, braised fennel, aged balsamic grilled asparagus, and roasted cherry tomatoes. This dish is as beautiful as it is delicious.
Be sure to stick around for dessert, too. My personal favorites are the Chocolate Lava Cake and the Coconut Cheesecake, but it is impossible to go wrong. I had the joy of getting to taste of few treats. My boyfriend really only likes chocolate so I “forced” to try the Coconut Cheesecake, Crème Brule, and two fruit pies all by myself. Poor me 😉
And now, in addition to their dreamy dinners, The Little Door is offering a “cheeky brunch,” featuring bottomless mimosas and upscale brunch favorites.
So be sure to escape from the bustle of LA behind The Little Door. It will be one of the most enchanting evenings of your life.
