Main St. has plenty of bars full of recent USC grads, but not so many cool, neighborhoody places to eat. Little Prince, though, is changing that. It’s in the old Fork in the Road space and is run by the chef who used to be at Alma, and is a great spot for a spontaneous date. Dinner is good, though inconsistent - starters like salmon rillette and brussels sprouts are fantastic, and while the seasoning on the wood-fired lamb ribs is excellent, they can also be way too chewy to eat. But with excellent cocktails, relaxed service, and the ability to walk in and hang out at the bar, Little Prince is worth checking in on if you’re in the area.
