We attended the grand opening party of our friends' restaurant, Xandros, on Thursday night and it was fabulous! The food was unique and delicious, the restaurant was gorgeous (including a huge outdoor patio facing La Cienega), and the entertainment was captivating. Highlights of the evening included the lamb chops, loukoumathes (fried dough with honey...ummmmm boy), watermelon mojitos, and a belly dancer balancing swords on her head. It was definitely an entire Greek experience and we can't wait to return for a sit down dinner soon. Check it out if you're in L.A.
