Opus Restaurant (Mid-Wilshire, Los Angeles)

3760 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90010

For our 8th year anniversary, we went to Opus in Mid-Wilshire area in LA, right next to the Wiltern Theatre. We had their 3-course tasting menus with some surprises in between.

For the amuse bouche, we had fennel seed "pudding" with some sort of sweet potato panna cotta and topped with green poppy-like seeds.For our first course, I had the hamachi and fried fish fritter on a stick w/ tomato caraway sauce. Tony had the golden beets salad.
In between the courses, the waitress brought a nice poached egg, with creme fraiche, chives, and bacon. This was wonderful! It was like a breakfast meal in an egg.
For our second course, I had the garlic cream and hazelnut broth w/ scallop and foie gras (seared scallop) and grapes. (The soup was so good that I ate it all before taking a picture!)
Our main course was the milk-fed roasted chicken atop butternut squash, shitake mushrooms, and green beans.

For dessert, we had peanut butter chocolate brownie with watermelon sorbet. Yum!
