Visit Los Angeles: Dominique Ansel’s Bakery and Restaurant

189 by Dominique Ansel is the chef's first restaurant.

Depending on who you ask, I may or may not have an unhealthy obsession with the cronut - the famous croissant-doughnut pastry created by New York's Chef Dominique Ansel.  All I can say is if I'm traveling to a place with a Dominique Ansel bakery within reasonable distance, it is more certain than taxes, that I'm going to make it happen. 

So no surprise that I ended a recent trip to Los Angeles with a visit to the Chef's first West Coast bakery and first-ever restaurant, 189 by Dominique Ansel.  The restaurant is located in popular shopping center, The Grove, and serves dinner nightly and brunch on weekends. 

Brunch is served family style and in sort of dim sum fashion where servers present trays of food and guests have the option to pick and choose.  The menu is broken into categories of breads and starches; meats; fish; veggies; premium items; and fruit.  Since we just ate cronuts before heading upstairs for brunch, we were pretty full but still managed to have room for bacon, lobster rolls, cronut holes, fried chicken, eggs, and salmon.  Yes, we had to be rolled out of there...and yes, the food baby was completely worth it.    

The famous cronut!
