Weekend Review: Fraiche Happy Hour

Baby Beet Salad, Orange, Pistachios, Ricotta

I've had a great experience at Fraiche's Santa Monica location for dinner, so I decided to try it out for happy hour on Thursday. Their happy hour menu has seemingly typical bar food (pizza, burgers, steamed mussels), but with a major gourmet twist. The truffle burger and baby beet salad were delicious - although it's hard to find fault in anything with truffles or house-made ricotta cheese. But the even sweeter deal lies in the cheap prices, available all night Sunday through Thursday. Oh, and they poured me monstrous glasses of Pinot Grigio.
