My brother flew in late last night from Boston. In the wind and the rain and the cold we scooted over to Avec for a late dinner and drinks. All of it was delicious, although I was constantly comparing their similar menu to L.A.'s AOC. I have to say Avec won out on two major points: their "Deluxe" Focaccia with Taleggio Cheese, Truffle Oil and Fresh Herbs and of course their sleek yet cozy decor. It was a perfect late night meal, well, up until my brother insulted the waitress, twice. Yeah. Happy Thanksgiving! See you next week!
