I have been to AOC on many occasions and I can confidently state that Suzanne Goin is a food genius. The food at AOC clearly reflects her creativity. The restaurant is divided into three areas; the upstairs, which is more private and subdued, the interior which is larger, louder and more social and the outside patio which is delightful. While my preference is the outside patio, I will sit anywhere to enjoy the magnificent dishes that are offered. For dinner, the roasted vegetable appetizer is spectacular and easily shared between two people. The three sisters salad is excellent and the fried chicken, while somewhat sinful, is amazing. Also, the hanger steak is pretty awesome. On their lunch menu, the bacon wrapped dates as an appetizer and any of the sandwiches they offer will not disappoint. So, whether you are an Angeleno like I am or a visitor, AOC is the quintessential LA experience. Don't miss it!
