    The Standard Restaurant is located in the front of the Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. This all-American restaurant is a stone’s throw from the busy financial district. The decor is an interesting yellow and white which is uplifting and feels like an upscale diner. We’ve visited previously and it still remains one of our favourite lunch time eateries when we’re in Downtown Los Angeles. There is also an outdoor dining area available, but it was raining during our visit so we had a large booth by the window. The menu is great here, and they have plenty of options for those wanting to be healthy, or alternatively those who want to indulge.

    We started our afternoon with an aperitif, two fine glasses of Sparkling Rose, Charles Bove, Loire Valley, France. A sparkling wine with a golden appearance, Fig and Pear flavours, complete with a frothy nose.

    To begin I ordered the Main Lobster Avocado Toast, served on a Country White Bread with Citrus Aioli and Cilantro Sprouts. A lovely starter to kick off the afternoon. My partner ordered the French Onion Soup, with Imperial Onion, Gruyere, Cheese, and Brioche Croutons. A simple dish, but executed perfectly.

    “The Standard delivered on the quality of the food, the service, and the ambience.”

    For our main course I ordered the Skuna Bay Salmon, with Creamed Kale, Caviar, and Root Vegetables. I adore Salmon, and when it’s been prepared and seasoned like this cut it’s a joy to eat. My partner ordered the Durham Ranch Beef Burger, with Mayonnaise, Butter Lettuce, Tomato, White Cheddar, and Red Onion, this was presented in a Brioche Bun and was a fine example of a fine burger. This dish was served with a side of Sweet Potato Fries with Smoked Paprika Aioli.

    For dessert we shared the Vanilla Creme Brulee, with freshly sliced Strawberries and Blueberries. It’s always satisfying cracking the hard caramel surface of a Creme Brulee and delving in, and this dessert didn’t disappoint.

    Our chosen wine for the afternoon was a bottle of 2012, Lupe-Cholet, Pouilly-Fuisse, Maconnais, France. A golden coloured wine with a delicate nose and some delicious notes of white fruits and spices. The Standard delivered on the quality of the food, the service, the ambience, and we look forward to returning in the future.
