THE FARM OF BEVERLY HILLS IN L.A. LIVE NEEDS A NAME CHANGE

image9 (2)Despite the name, The Farm of Beverly Hills has a location inside the L.A. Live entertainment complex in DTLA.  I’m not really sure how this restaurant stays in business because every time I go by the place is empty.  We had dinner there a few nights ago and there was only one other couple in the dining room for the first hour of our meal.  It’s not because they have bad food or bad service… in fact the food and service are great.

We started with the Kale and Quinoa Salad ($9.85) served with crisp vegetables, avocado and a red wine vinaigrette, plus a cup of their soup of the day ($3.45) which was Tortilla Soup.  Both of these appetizers were delicious.

Our main courses were the Rigatoni Bolognese ($15.85) and the Oven Roasted Chicken Breast ($19.85).  The Rigatoni was covered in Slow Braised Beef and Pork Bolognese with English Peas and Fresh Grated Pecorino Cheese.  It was perfect.  The Chicken Breast was served with Brussels Sprouts, Leeks, Fingerling Potatoes along with a Lemon Chardonnay Sauce.  It was good too.

Thaddeus who is the restaurant’s bartender was also our table server.  He was great.  He wasn’t overly attentive.  He knew when to check in and when to just let us enjoy our food.

image8 (2)I really think that part of the reason people bypass The Farm of Beverly Hills and eat at other restaurants in L.A. Live is because of the name.  Why call it The Farm of Beverly Hills?  Adding “of Beverly Hills” makes the place sound pricey and uptight… and it’s not.  The restaurant’s website describes the place as “a comfort food haven for the hard working downtown crowd.”  Well, the hard working downtown crowd” doesn’t want to eat in a Beverly Hills restaurant.  Just call the restaurant “The Farm” and see if more people decide to check it out.

image3 (2)OH!  I forgot to mention that the cornbread muffins and that honey butter they bring out before the meal are AWESOME!
