Eat Out. Cafe Stella.

This adorable restaurant is tucked away near Intelligentsia in Silverlake on Sunset, and probably has the tastiest, most authentic French food I've ever had.

The salads are excellent, as are the soups, pastas, and I'm told the meat here is quite good. Basically everything is tasty. They serve Chimay Triple (the white label) as well as other excellent European beers. The portions however, are authentically French too so appetizers are recommended.

The ambiance is quaint, although it is about half a block up from busy Sunset Boulevard, it still has a quiet, intimate atmosphere with candles lighting tables on the tiny patio and a charming inside, decorated with a vintage theme. Following its legit Frenchness, eating here you totally feel welcome to spend as much time you need to eat and enjoy the night, which is a big plus.

But the price tag on this is a bit high; entrees in the $30 region can make this a rare experience rather than a regular excursion. Despite its cost, this is definitely a place worth checking out. They also have particular hours, only opening from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m., and 6 p.m.-11 p.m. Sunday they close at 10 p.m. -- not exactly predictable.

Cafe Stella is located at 3932 W. Sunset Blvd.
