The owners of this lovely property in the mountains just north of the Topanga Village opened their amazing property to Chef Quenioux and his LQ Foodings team to host a multi-course dinner this weekend. It was a beautiful night, with lovely views, and the weather was perfect for an outdoor dinner.
And what a dinner it was, considered a bargain by many of the diners, as you get 7 courses plus a glass of apertif: Dijon Cassis Kir, for only $80 plus tax, gratuity and a processing fee for purchasing your tickets online.
Cold/room temperature appetizers were the perfect dishes to serve on this night to start the dinner with, leading up to three delicious main course including the seafood course, garnished with a delicious bouillabase broth, to beef short ribs served with cordyceps mushrooms.
It was a wonderful progression of dishes, and this is certainly one of the better pop-up dinners around these days in the LA area. It’s the type of dining I enjoy: gradual progression of dishes, relaxed atmosphere, not excessively loud, and no loud music blaring away. Instead, contemporary jazz was played in the background, at a volume that did not make it difficult for one to carry a conversation with dinner mates nearby.
