I wrote in January about the expected birth of a brand new bistro for Studio City. y is finally here. It is beautiful, elegant, light, bright, and delicious. Charlie's took a little time to open, but it was well worth the wait.
Charlie's is located in the California Pavilion center at 12265 Ventura Blvd., and is located below California Pizza Kitchen.
I interviewd co-owner and namesake Charlie Pearson (formally of Dusty's in Silverlake) and her "Master Chief" mother-in-law, Maria.
Please click on the attached video to see the bistro, the food, the dining room, and the ambience.
You can hear from Charlie herself. Charlie's brings to Studio City, as promised, an affordable gourmet experience for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
There is free underground validated parking at this small shopping center at Ventura Boulevard and Laurelgrove Avenue. It is right next to the walking bridge short-cut that crosses over the Los Angeles River.
