Eating Out Paleo: Bottega Louie, Los Angeles, CA
This is a very trendy bakery/restaurant in Downtown LA. Unfortunately, the best food here isn’t particularly Paleo-friendly (they’re known for their macaroons and pizza!), but there are still some good Paleo options available. What I loved the most about this restaurant was the beautiful modern space and open kitchen.
The menu has a large selection of salads and entrees (lamb, steak, short ribs, and pork chop) to choose from, but you do have to look through a ton of pasta and pizza options to get to them.
I went for something light – the Mache salad with mache (a type of lettuce), frisée, bay leaf brined roasted chicken, avocado, celery, scallions, julienned snap peas, Meyer lemon & extra virgin olive oil. It was very clean tasting, and the dressing wasn’t too overpowering (although it was quite lemony) so that the freshness of the vegetables really came through.
It’s definitely a nice place to stop in for a snack in Downtown LA.
