Little Door Owners, Frederic and Nicolas Meschin, continue to elevate French Gastronomy in Los Angeles Restaurant Scene
LOS ANGELES, CA – Bordeaux-born brothers and nightlife impresarios, Frederic and Nicolas Meschin, opened The Little Door 13 years ago in order to provide discerning guests with the essence of an authentic European dining experience. With an emphasis on “educating the palette, speaking to the soul and opening hearts around the table,” the Meschin’s quickly became recognized as Los Angeles’ ambassadors to a quality lifestyle experience on bustling 3rd Street known for several other hip and chic environs.
In search of perfect setting, they transformed the converted old school house into one of the most ambient and romantic restaurants in Los Angeles. With European and Mediterranean motifs, the restaurant resembles and feels more like a private sanctuary underscored by its discrete little door entrance. The unique setting soon became a destination for Hollywood A-listers, celebrities and trend-setters from all types of vocations.
But people don’t just flock to The Little Door for the gorgeous outdoor patio and flowing fountain, they come for the cuisine. The brothers’ childhood culinary experience fused with the Mediterranean influences of Chef T. Nicholas Peter, bring a unique and worldly flavor to the menu. They were the first to use fresh organic ingredients sourced from local farmers. This became signature for the restaurant, setting the bar for other LA restaurants to reach.
Now over a decade later, The Little Door’s Mediterranean-inspired ambiance, extensive wine list and seasonal menu, has remained true to the Meschin’s vision. This has allowed the restaurant to flourish and maintain a secure place in Los Angeles’s pantheon of great dining experiences.
In an effort to expand on their vision, the Meschins opened an extension to the restaurant, Little Next Door in late 2006. Little Next Door is a classic French prepared-foods establishment and artisan market offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here one can find all the French delicacies and quotidian staples of a European lifestyle: fresh baked breads and pastries, sandwiches, salads and their own line of condiments, salad dressings and gourmet foods such as figs poached with vanilla bean and sun-dried tomato tapenade, packaged in classic glass jars with charming hand-made labels.
The newest addition to Little Next Door is their full service delivery option. The Brothers desire to extend the quality lifestyle experience to homes and offices of busy Angelenos. So now, one can have breakfast, lunch and dinner accompanied with fresh made dessert and a bottle of wine delivered to their door.
