Find it once, and you'll go back, Los Angeles Times, March 30, 2005
Tucked away in a strip mall, Nook is everything a bistro should be: small and intimate, but stylish and smart.

Eating Out...Nook the neighborhood bistro 
for LA2DAY.COM, September 12th, 2008

Whether it's an anonymous-looking mini mall or a more fashionable retail space like the Westfield or Americana at Brand, Angelenos have come to expect good food in every nook and cranny of the city - even if it's in the most unlikely places.
