The Arts District has been the go-to neighborhood for new restaurant openings, and pastry chef Lincoln Carson’s Bon Temps is no exception. Bon Temps means “Good Time,” which you are guaranteed to have here whether you go for the exceptional breakfast pastries or the full dinner (we recommend both). The croissants are some of the best in Los Angeles. Highlights include the poppyseed-filled kouign amman and the toad-in-a-hole, a croissant pocket with an egg inside. For dinner, our favorite dish was the roasted Jidori chicken for two, topped with a black truffle sauce and served with a panzanella-like salad of bread, greens, and mashed potatoes. You’re going to want to order more than one dessert here – our favorites were the St. Honore Cake and the chocolate soufflé.
Note: This restaurant has closed permanently.
