Asia de Cuba

To end my birthmonth celebrations my parents came to town.  Whenever they are in town I make sure to do a lot of good eating; there aren't a lot of great options in my hometown so they're excited to try places and I'm more than happy to play tour guide.

I was set on taking them to Asia de Cuba; I've been to the New York location in the past and loved it.  The New York location offers an entirely gluten free menu, so it's a great choice for an extravagant dinner in the city.  Here in L.A. the restaurant does not offer a gluten free menu but my server was extremely helpful in guiding me through the menu selection.  The restaurant is located inside the Mondrian hotel on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood -- it's a great place to take people visiting from out of town.

I ended up ordering the Chilean Sea Bass special served with a gazpacho and fresh vegetables after the waiter advised me that it was gluten free.  It seemed like a great choice on a "cold" L.A. day.

The sea bass was absolutely amazing.  The gazpacho added a lot of flavor to the fish particularly because it came coupled with the fresh vegetables underneath.  It was a bit of a chilly day in Los Angeles but luckily the sun broke through for a bit and we had some nice views of downtown.  I really appreciated Asia de Cuba's help in choosing gluten free dishes for me.  I would certainly recommend this place for the amazing food and the spectacular views of L.A.  The New York location's gluten free menu is also amazing.

Do you love it or do you love it?
