Chef Dave Beran’s classy new French bistro brings old-school charm to Santa Monica. This is the only restaurant in L.A. where you can order a canard à la presse, a classic French dish that uses every part of the duck. The breast and legs are cooked separately, while the rest of the bird goes into the duck press in a table-side presentation that creates a rich sauce. Other favorite dishes at Pasjoli include roasted hen of the woods mushrooms with a buckwheat crepe, turbot with brown butter, and broccolini with béarnaise and Bayonne ham. Save room to try all of the desserts – there’s a refreshing passionfruit tart, a spectacularly gooey chocolate soufflé, and, our favorite, the riz au lait with caramelized pineapple.
