The farm to table concept has been a recent trend that is overtaking many restaurants locally and abroad. One such restaurant, Prospect Gourmand has incorporated this concept with open arms. This small and quaint Beverly Hills restaurant is new, cozy and brings fresh elements from the farmer's market to your table. Approximately 60% of the ingredients are organic. Chef Isaac Gamboa and his staff visit the farmer's market once a week in search for the freshest ingredients that are in season. As a result, his dishes are innovative and enticing.
Using French techniques, Chef Gamboa creates dishes with a modern twist. Take for instance the Prospect BKE Burger: a delicious burger topped with kimchi! Kimchi?!?! Yes, who would have thought a ground beef patty could taste so good with kimchi. Or the Gourmand Burger with the option of adding foie gras. With the food on the verge of being top notch, there are still a few kinks to work out like any other restaurant that has recently opened its doors.

Overall, Prospect Gourmand has the potential to be something amazing. It is a fairly new restaurant that still needs some minor improvements. For example, my utensils were forgotten when I ordered my food. Additionally, it took some time to flag down a waitress to order dessert and for the check. In terms of the food, it is aromatic and pretty flavorful. I'm sure with a few tweaks and some time, this restaurant will be one of the popular restaurants in Los Angeles.
