Traveling south towards the French Riviera and the Cannes Film Festival, one may find themselves in the town of Provence .  Blending the elegance and class of the French and the health consciousness of Southern California , Salades de Provence brings delicious organic salads, quiches, crepes and an array of desserts to the corner of Holloway Drive and La Cienega north of Santa Monica Blvd.   Situated within walking distance from a number of condominiums and small businesses, the word is spreading throughout LA about Salades de Provence.  After parking around the corner and walking toward the small quaint corner restaurant on a dark rainy evening, Salades interior lights stood out like a “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” print. 

On this evening was able to meet the owner Richard Makinadjian where he told me about his inspiration for his restaurant. I started with French onion soup which quickly warmed me from the cold outside weather.  The Salade “a la mode” made with fresh prawns in marinated curry sauce, caramelized pork, noodles, fresh soya sprouts and cherry tomatoes on a bed of lettuce was just the perfect meal after my long commute from the OC.  As a frequent reviewer of dining establishments in Hollywood and the Westside, I found it refreshing to have a lighter course meal which didn’t make me feel like an boat anchor “weighing me down”. 

There was plenty of room on our stomachs to try the Nutella Crepe filled with strawberries, bananas, chocolate topped with whip cream with my guest.  Other light-faire dishes include dozens of different types of salads and quiches. They also serve breakfast and are open daily from 9:00 am to 9:30 pm everyday.  Due to after work traffic congestion getting to the restaurant, I would leverage the non-congested off-hours offered by the restaurant and come by for a late lunch ( 2:30 PM ) or dinner ( 8:30 PM ).  Definitely try out Salades de Provence where good South of France salads and quiches are found on North La Cienaga in West Hollywood .
