A Kitchen Nightmare That Was: Gordon Ramsay Fixes Sante La Brea
Eating L.A. caught a Craigslist post touting that Sante La Brea did up a new menu, compliments of Chef Gordon Ramsay. In a phone conversation with the health conscious restaurant, who LAist visited last May to try vegan pizza, they said an episode of Kitchen Nightmares will feature them around next October.
Their website points towards their new name, Sante Cuisine, with a new menu to be posted "soon" (whatever that means).
For now, to find out what's on that menu, you can visit them, sample and give feedback. For Sante fans, the menu is not a 100% redo as they incorporated restaurant favorites with Ramsay's menu, which is a bit more upscale, minus the cheesy fake meats. However, tofu and vegan options will still be offered along with the natural and health themes its foods always carried. Ramsay never seems to be a fan when the restaurant goes back with old menu items, so it will be interesting to see how he reacts when and if he revisits the restaurant this summer.
Sante Cuisine is located at 345 N La Brea Ave., just north of Beverly Blvd. Call ahead to make sure the menu is ready for your tasting pleasure:(323) 937-2683.
