The classic loves of literature align with LA Central Library-adjacent Cafe Pinot’s cuisine in this month-long celebration from Feb. 6-28. The Literary Love Menu features a four-course tasting menu with dishes inspired by the love affairs of classic novels, chosen by L.A.’s City Librarian, John F. Szabo. Dine on a Waldorf salad inspired by Jay & Daisy from The Great Gatsby; gnocchi and truffles inspired by Romeo and Juliet from Romeo & Juliet; and Cote de Boeuf for two served with smoked fingerling potatoes and bone marrow inspired by Ennis and Jack from Brokeback Mountain. Dessert offers a trio of literary inspired chocolates from Compartes Chocolatier.
Here are a few highlights of what to expect.
