|IT'S OFFICIALLY A MEDIA DARLING. Atwater Village bistro Canele (3219 Glendale Blvd.) has been positively inked by the leading daily, weekly and, now, monthly print publications in Los Angeles.|
As follow-up to its restaurant award dessert blurb, Los Angeles Magazine gives Canele the full photo-and-caption treatment:
"Chef Corina Weibel, formerly of Lucques, is bringing aioli-intensive, Cal-Mediterranean cooking to Atwater Village. The walls are exposed brick, the kitchen is open, and the atmosphere is relentlessly festive. A pissal-adiere appetizer crowns a browned and blistered crust with tangy cooked-down onions. Herb-roasted leg of lamb with braised endive and grapefruit and Israeli couscous whips around several cultures before finding its own perfect place. The flan's an ideal dessert. Reservations not accepted."
