Painfully cheesy title. Yes, Malachi is bailing on this country and taking up residence in France for six months. He’s not leaving for another three weeks, but with my travel schedule for work I wasn’t sure if I’d get another chance to see him. Bon Voyage lunch, it was!
We went to Vivian’s Millennium Cafe, a little hole in the wall on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City. To get to the patio, you actually have to walk through the kitchen!
The courtyard is ridiculously cute and cozy. It’s tucked between two buildings and surrounded by plants that block out any traffic sounds. You wouldn’t even know that you were in LA – and that impresses me.
One last candid shot of Malachi before he becomes snobby and too uppity and important to eat day old bread.
(French law prohibits the consumption of bread that is older than two hours.)
I ordered the chicken salad sammich on wheat which was tasty, but the REAL star of the meal was the potato salad! I don’t know what they put in this – smiles, sunshine, shooting stars, warm ocean breeze… but whatever it was, it was INCREDIBLE!!! The most epic potato salad of my life. I’ve been daydreaming about it ever since.
Farewell, Malachi! I look forward to harassing you on the interwebs, and then in person when you return!
