Abigaile is a restaurant that has been on my list to try for quite sometime. During DineLA, they were offering 4 small plates, including dessert, for $45. It seemed like a great deal, and there was plenty to choose from off the DineLA menu. During last month’s Restaurant Week, I finally make the trek out to Hermosa Beach with a friend.
Once I got to Abigaile and was able to compare the regular menu and the DineLA menu side by side, I realized that I really wasn’t saving much money by ordering off the DineLA menu. Although the menu items are good, they are the less expensive items from the regular menu (plus smaller portions). We decided to ditch the DineLA menu and stick with the regular menu, and I am glad we did!
You can click through our food choices in the gallery above. The baby octopus was amazing–Tender and packed with flavor! The bone marrow was massive and delicious. Once we were done with the marrow, I packed up the bone for my pup, Arty, to enjoy at home. Neither of these items were part of the DineLA menu.
Next to be served were the P.I.G. Pop Tarts and Brussels. Looking back, I probably wouldn’t order this same combination in the future. Though these two dishes were good on their own, they were both very rich. After the delicious octopus and rich bone marrow, the bacon and buttery pastry of the Pop Tart and the creamy cheese and more bacon in the brussels was proving to be a bit too heavy.
By the time the scallops arrived, we were STUFFED. We will tackled the final plate with fervor. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the mushroom risotto was wonderful. Had we not been so extremely full, I think it would have been a perfect end to the meal.
Abigaile also has their own brewery, so I enjoyed a tasting flight of 6 beers. I am not a big beer fan, and unfortunately, only enjoyed one out of the six.
By far, the favorite order of the night was the baby octopus!
