Not only is the food special, but the wait staff is the friendliest in Chinatown. One waitress told us she has worked there for 31 years.
From the Sweet and Sour soup to the Moo Shu, all are excellent dishes. This was the restaurant I was introduced to Beef with Black Bean Sauce, and it is really wonderful.
I highly recommend if you are in the area, to try this once. You will be hooked!

Today was the opening of the new Cafe in the Boat House at the lake. It is being operated by Square One Dining.
Square One Dining also has a cafe at 4854 Fountain Avenue in Los Angeles.
They use organic, local and small farm produce.
It's definitely nice to have a cafe in the park,
since the remodel has made the park a lovely venue.
Here's a couple of the new Pedal Boats on the lake

The restaurant went through a major remodel and was transformed into a lovely, formal spot. This is the type of restaurant that is perfect for special occasions or an intimate dinner.
The menu consists of small plates that are lovely in their execution and with distinct flavors you may have a hard time finding anywhere else.
Allumette means Matchstick in French.
Lets start with the drink menu, creative and yummy. These are very creative and the ingredients blend together quite well. Drink Menu: http://allumettela.com/drink.html
Chef Miles Thompson has come up with quite a unique menu. They do have a tasting menu that can be coupled with wine, but we opted for individual dishes to get a broader experience.
What was once a bold, brightly colored space, has become an elegant intimate dining experience.
I highly recommend you go and experience the flavorful dishes and drinks at this lovely restaurant.

On Saturday the crew will start removing the fence that has encircled the lake during the past year and half of construction. While it will take a few days to have the fence fully removed, there will be a full day of celebration hosted by Mayor-Elect Eric Garcetti, the Department of Rec and Parks and the Bureau of Engineering for the Lake’s reopening ceremonies. Featured speakers and performers will gather at the corner of Logan Street and Park Avenue just before 10:00 am.
