Now Open: French Dining at Le Ka

Downtown's newest, Le Ka, is an interesting concept. It's billed as an American bistro with chef Remi Lauvand behind the stoves, and the owner hails from Wokcano among other brands. Set in a former bank at 6th and Flower, it's pretty dang spacious with soaring ceilings and sleek decor. The wine list is just as enormous, with bottles going up to $800. Economy, be damned!

French-born Lauvand, who was most recently at Cafe Pierre in the South Bay, is the reason the menu is so French-leaning. But it does have a little bit of everything from everywhere - local halibut crudo to onion soup, wild boar meatballs, rabbit terrine and sweetbreads with wild mushrooms. There's even pizza. And "hand-crafted" cocktails. And craft beer. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner daily, with a decent happy hour in place, too. [via Rundown]
