I was too full to write this review

I was too full to write this review when I first went to Animal. If that's not saying how good this place was, then I don't know what will. The wait staff was very friendly - something that's pretty rare in LA. Our waiter gave us the rundown of all the good things to order. Our eyes were too big for our stomachs - we both ordered appetizers as well as entrees. To start, we had the Petite Basque and Pork Ribs. Both were excellent. The cheesiness of the basque on the garlic bread was a great start. The ribs were falling off the bone, just like I like them. We were smart enough to not eat all of our appetizers, knowing how much food was coming later. For the main course, I had the Quail Fry (recommended by just about everyone you talk to who's been to Animal) and my girlfriend had the Duck Breast. The quail was great. Sure, it could be considered as fancy fried chicken, but oh it was so much more. Served on a bed of grits, it was comfort food at its finest. Rather than take any home since I knew it wouldn't be as good the next day, I finished all my food. By the time I got home, I had to go to sleep because I was too full to do anything else. But it was one of those good kind of full, you know what I mean? This place was excellent and I will definitely be back.
