I have eaten here three times: twice for lunch and once for drinks and light bar fare. The two lunches were disappointing in that items that should be authentically French were not. First, the crepes. Since the demise of Chez Puce in the 1970s, I have not found a truly great crepe in the Los Angeles area. They should correctly be thin, crisp, made of buckwheat flour, and not have too much filling. The ones here were a little soft and soggy and had way too much rich filling. I experienced this with both the vegetable ones and the smoked salmon ones. Secondly, the l'Epicerie Sandwich was a baguette with butter, ham and cheese, and lettuce. What made it not French (to me) was that the baguette was heated, so that the cheese got soft and melty, which is not how baguette sandwiches are served in France. The drinks and bar food experience was more positive, helped a lot by the charming barman, who knew just what kind of white wine to choose for me.
