Los Angeles - Second City Bistro

Chill place to hang.   It is after all, a bistro.  And its cozy interiors, with open kitchen and brick walls, with booth seating is exactly as it should be although on a Tuesday night, it is quiet and not quite so cool..  Perhaps it was a little too early.

The food is as the website introduces, American fare with flair.  And the menu promises that, and then some.  

Execution was a little flat though.  The French onion soup certainly did not have a soup stock base which boasted the workings of a brew but rather a short cut of sorts.  2 tads saltier than it should be did not help either.  But if you like your salt, it is tasty for that reason alone.

My half burger as I shared with KS was better though.  Chargrilled beef patty, albeit a little overdone, with caramelised onions, crispy bacon with lettuce and tomato was tasty enough although as burgers go, this won't make it to any top 10 category.

Perhaps BK's choice of the salads with char-grilled beef was the better way to go.  If I'm in El Segundo, I might give it another go, but it won't be a place I purposely drive out to though.
