DineLA: The Olive Kitchen + Bar

I've been wanting to check out this Sunset spot for quite a while now, so DineLA seemed like the perfect opportunity since the cheese plate (which I was looking forward to the most) was part of their set menu!  Plus, now I have a good idea about how I'm going to spend both my Groupon AND LivingSocial.   Totally apologize for my iPhone photos, but my E-PL1 was at home getting some rest.

Went with my friend E and we each tried something different and shared.  Much more variety this way :-).

 Cheese & Meat Plate w/ Fig, Spiced Nuts, Olives & Fennel Bread.  The Burratta was beyond amazing.  Melt in your mouth smooth and perfectly spreadable.

 Beet & Burratta salad.  Again... amazing cheese, gorgeous beets, wonderful dish. 

 Halibut with garlic mashed potatoes & tomato sauce.  Honestly after the cheese plate & knowing we had dessert on the way, I could only eat one tiny nibble before I packed it up for lunch the next day!

 My friend went with the Pot Pie.   I know she ate the entire top, so I can only imagine it was as delicious as it looked and smelled!  

 Not kidding, perhaps some of THE RICHEST Tiramisu I've ever had in my life.  AMAZING, but I needed to drink like a cup of black coffee PER bite of this confection.

And finally the chocolate cake.  Really rich, very dense with a lovely presentation.
