From Culver Studios to Sony, neighborhood artisans, musicians, and various entrepreneurs alike enjoy commerce from an eclectic array of boutiques, cafes, and galleries upon the foliage-lined avenues, which fashion Downtown Culver City. Amongst several local treasures, Le Saint Amour is the quintessential stop for the weekly Sunday brunch outing with friends…or even dinner with a loved one. The Parisian charm and brasserie décor encourage you to settle into a chic banquette, sip a flavorful glass of Pinot Nior, and taste the essence of French cuisine; special from Chef Bruno Herve Commereuc.
Former Church and State Bistro chef, Walter Manske recently consulted on several new menu additions (including Soupe à l’Oignon Gratinée and Pain Perdu) but the classical specialties (such as Assiette de Charcuterie, Saumon Terrine, Croque Madame) will always have a place on the list. A couple of the famous Brunch dishes are Omelette Merguez and Moules Frites. I personally recommend the Duck Confit and Quiche du Jour paired with a glass of the Mcilroy Pinot Noir.
In addition to purchasing bread goods from Bread Lounge and fresh produce from the community Farmers Market, Le Saint Amour also participates in sponsored events to stay connected to the community. Last Labor Day Weekend, Le Saint Amour joined in Taste of Beverly Hills, Food and Wine Magazine’s four-day festival of food, wine, and music, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
In June 2011, Le Saint Amour will connect with Share Our Strength to support fundraising efforts towards ending childhood hunger at Media Park for Taste of the Nation. Le Saint Amour is also associated with Third Wednesdays in which live music played by neighbors, customer discounts in downtown boutiques and cafes, as well as art exhibits in local galleries fill the streets of Downtown Culver City every third Wednesday of the month.
Le Saint Amour is located at 9725 Culver Boulevard, Culver City, 310.842.8155
