"It's a relaxed space that serves delicious handcrafted market food that's totally unpretentious."
"Corina Weibel, a Nancy Silverton protegee...works the farmers-market-driven urban rustic side of new Los Angeles cooking: the Provencal onion tart pissaladiere and an austere green salad with creme fraiche; rare roast lamb with Israeli couscous and beef bourguignon with noodles; steak with potatoes Anna; and an honest flan. This is cooking worthy of the good china."
"Every time I drop in to Canelé (and drop in is the only way to go since the Atwater Village restaurant doesn't take reservations), I end up sitting at the communal table in the front window...Because the communal table sitters tend to be a self-selected group, people are often more sociable and they linger. Over wine. Over coffee. Over the beguiling buena chica cheesecake."
