The "Chef Experience"

We will send you a custom menu based on information that you provide on a menu questionnaire, but you will always have an opportunity to discuss your menu with our Chef in person or on the telephone. We want you to explore all of the possibilities of your menu and to create ideas as a collaborative effort based on your taste and budget.

 

There is never a dull moment at the Très L.A. kitchen as we are constantly testing, compressing, dehydrating, evaporating and sometimes sphering. For the Très L.A. Kitchen team, it's about being playful with the classics and continuously creating new and adventurous menus. 

The "Service Experience"

Many of our servers and bartenders have worked for Très L.A. for five or more years. Clients love seeing familiar faces and they will regularly ask us for servers that they know personally. We don't use staffing agencies and all of our servers are required to go though service training before they step on the floor for us. We want to ensure that you will always have a knowledgeable, professional staff of ladies and gentlemen with positive attitudes.

 

The "Tiny Noticeable Touches"

We love the tiny touches. We make our own ice cream, roll butter with seasonal herbs, have nice sea salts on the tables, provide warm house made baskets of bread. We know that these small details have a large impact on the guests' overall experience. It doesn't matter if your guest count is 50 or 500, we won't overlook the "TNT".
