Luxe Sunset just debuted its new Fall menu. Chef Olivier Rousselle has moved away from the lighter menu he had for Summer in favor of a heartier menu heavier on starches and meats. While that may seem funny due to it still being around 80 most days hey more meat is always a good thing in my eyes. The biggest standout for me in the Fall menu was the zucchini soup with smoked trout. Chef Rousselle actually told me this soup would be vegan without the trout. Its smooth and creamy and makes me want to try making a soup myself to see if I can get the creaminess he does out of zucchini. The trout adds a rich smoky flavor that just makes it a soup you will remember. Other than that the lamb chops here are perfectly cooked. I would have liked a little more spices or some kind of rub but I know the chef has to appeal to wide demographic range. Overall a nice date spot in Bel Air.
