Montresor is a French restaurant on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City that's both very traditional and a little odd - in a good way. The design scheme falls somewhere between a Versailles parlor room and your grandmother’s attic, and they serve an edible bag of chocolate-covered pop rocks with your bread and butter. But the rest of the menu reads very traditional: bib lettuce salad, coq au vin, and profiteroles. Most of the dishes are solid, though not particularly impressive. If you do come, get the crab cakes - they’re the best thing here.
