Girasol in Studio City
Girasol 11334 Moorpark St. Studio City 91602
Upon stepping in, you'll immediately notice the gorgeous detailed decor of Girasol. This place was beyond stunning and the as a photographer, the lighting was perfect. The concept of the decor is of a sunflower, which is what Girasol means in Spanish and you can certainly see the petals expanded across the ceiling.
Aside from the decor, the food was absolutely delicious. From the cocktails to the courses, this place will leave you feeling satisfied. Chef C.J. Jacobson does not disappoint and if you watch Top Chef, that's where you'll recognize him from.
We started off with freshly baked bread, unique jams, and a hot cup of coffee. It was not long before we were tasting cocktails though as the bartender made us a few drinks that we certainly couldn't turn down. Before getting too full, we dove into an octopus and avocado salad which was so refreshing. We moved onto the crab cake, with an egg on top, yes - an egg. With a pear salad, it was definitely a winner in our book.
After that, we had foie gras with an egg and olive biscuits under that goodness. Finishing off the meal, we had a steak salad. It was the best way to finish a meal. The service is also worth mentioning, as we had our plates and utensils changed out often. They were on point!
