    CouCou French-Inspired Bistro Offers Amazing Drinks and Bites

    CouCou has opened a second location, the first is in Venice, in West Hollywood. The French-inspired bistro has a pretty intimate outdoor space and a cozy inside space with a long bar and a few tables and booths.

    The new restaurant offers a 75-seat establishment tucked away on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Nemo Street. It is a welcome respite from the outside world where guests can expect perfectly prepared martinis with freshly shucked oysters at a stunning marble-topped bar and wood-fired French favorites on a sun-dappled, star jasmine-lined patio.

    Appetizers include a vegetable plate with hummus and olive tapenade; tuna tartare; whipped farmer’s cheese with smoked salmon and dill on a crostini; Hamachi ceviche; fried olives; zucchini beignets with chevre and a Bibb lettuce salad. There are also great seafood specialties including a prawn cocktail and lovely oysters, as well as a Petrossian caviar service with potato chips.

    There’s plenty of French classics including a French onion soup, steak tartare, steak frites, mussels in a saffron tomato broth and escargots. They also serve a huge Wagyu burger which looked delicious and a special “L’Haute Dog” with pork sausage, cheese fondue and French onion marmalade which we ordered and was delicious, as well as grilled Dorade, chicken paillard, pasta rigatoni and a great braised short rib. Side dishes don’t disappoint including a lovely artichoke heart side, grilled asparagus, truffle Brussels Sprouts, harissa roasted cauliflower, haricot verts and pommes frites.

    Desserts include their famous soft serve sundae with a chocolate hard shell, cherries and almonds and a chocolate mousse.

    CouCou is perfect for an intimate romantic dinner on the patio, drinks and appetizers before a show or just to enjoy some delicious French dishes. Located at 9045 Santa Monica Boulevard, reservations at Resy.

    Be forewarned that an automatic 20% surcharge is added to all bills. They say this is not a tip or gratuity and that a tip or gratuity is Not expected. The surcharge they say is for all employees to earn a living wage. Also it would be nice if this restaurant actually put prices on their menu so one can get some idea of how much one will be spending to dine at this establishment.

    Dislike restaurants that are not transparent with their prices. But I guess lately its easier just to omit prices from a menu since they seem to be increasing prices daily! Walked past a Chinese restaurant yesterday on Beverly and now lunch ‘specials’ are almost $20!
