176 N Canon Dr
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Wolfgang Puck unlike most Los Angeles chefs, doesn't earn his reputation
for feeding celebrities, he outshines them. Puck is now as much a
household name as Brad Pitt or Julia Roberts, and his flagship
restaurant, Spago Beverly Hills, is one reason why. The landmaark
eatery, with its amethyst and amber hues, mahogany wood and jeweled
glass decor, lures the senses while creating a relaxing casual yet chic
The seasonal menu starts with Puck's classics like salmon- and
caviar-crowned pizzas and Sonoma baby lamb with braised greens and
rosemary. Dishes are infused with Californian twists. Newer creations
such as the sweet white corn agnolotti and steamed Hong Kong-style black
bass draw from Puck's Austrian upbringing. Desserts come courtesy of
Executive Pastry Chef Sherry Yard, a Brooklyn native whose signatures
include peach- and apricot-infused tarts and sumptuous souffles. Watch
Spago's creations take shape behind the four-paneled sliding panes that
house Puck's famous open kitchen. If all the action grows too dizzying,
you can always decompress with a garden walk or chill out before one of
Puck's Hockneys or Miros.
14016 Ventura Blvd
Sherman Oaks, CA 91423
The original Sherman Oaks location became popular so quickly
reservations were required several weeks in advance. The culinary crowd
of Los Angeles deigned to make a trip over the hill for a look-see. This
French provincial bistro has garnered unanimous raves with its superb
gourmet fare and unpredictably petite prices, even among those with
Three Bizou restaurants are now located in the Greater Los Angeles area,
yet none has the charm of the original Ventura Boulevard location. The
bucolic air of a French country cottagesetting is what sets this
location apart from teh others. There is nothing to not like about a
restaurant that displays some of the best appetizers and entrees in town
-- steak au poivre in brandy cream sauce, roasted pork tenderloin rolled
in garlic and herbs, lobster and salmon ravioli in lobster sauce -- all
for under $20 Throw in a corkage fee ($2) and it's no wonder dining
surveys rank Cafe Bizou consistently at the top of the list for most
popular restaurant in LA.
544 S. Grand Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90071
Water grill has been hailed by critics as home to the best seafood in
LA. Water Grill has an exposed kitchen, elegant, high-back booths in the
dining room and modern art on the walls. Extremely delicate lighting and
an intimate table arrangement exude a warm and inviting vibe. Start your
dining experience with oysters on the half shell (six varieties to
choose from), and white chowder with Manila clams or Maryland prime
soft-shell crabs with salsify puree, which both rear their head on the
menu from time to time. Lunch courses include an herb-crusted mahi mahi,
a pan-fried Atlantic spotted skate wing and a pan-roasted New York strip
steak with pomme frittes and Bordelaise sauce. Dinner introduces four
types of caviar, bouillabaisse with monkfish, sculpin and rouget in a
fennel-tomato broth and Maine lobster served with root vegetables.
Dessert brings a chocolate banana tart and honeydew melon soup. Menus
change daily, but for $85 a guest you have a seven-course meal prepared
by the chef which lets one sample all of the highlights.
8022 W 3rd St
Los Angeles, CA 90048
A.O.C. is the abbreviation for the somewhat intimidating phrase,
"appellation d'origine controllee" is a French regulation that ensures the
origin of a wine and guarantees its production standards. Nothing is
intimidating about this smart and attractive bistro, which displays one of
Los Angeles' premier wine bars. A modest dining room is dressed in warm wood
and russet tones and comfortably designed to accommodate a full-booking. The
food is served tapas-style, with a charcuterie selection that includes jamon
serrano (chili spiced ham), pork rillettes with pickled onions and a foie
gras terrine served with sweet and sour prunes. A.O.C. also features a
detailed cheese selection, vegetarian specialties from the wood-burning
oven, and fish and meat mini-entrees.
3280 Helms Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90034
Beacon is a creative Asian brainstorm between chef Kazuto Matsusaka and his
wife Vicki. Sky-high ceilings, suspended light fixtures, industrial bricks
and rich wood flavors, decorate a very Zen-like modern atmosphere without
being too committed to any one design principle. For lunch there's a
five-spiced chicken salad with Napa cabbage, a Furikake wild salmon and a
grilled hangar steak on olive bread. For dinner, chicken skewers, crispy
oysters, vegetable curry and even an Ahi tuna pizza with Wasabi mayonnaise.
You'll want to skip straight to dessert for the shamelessly American Rice
Krispy sundae which comes doused in hot fudge and caramel sauces, if the
main courses are too eclectic for your tastes. Beacon is a sign of more
serious things to come in an area of Culver City known more for furniture
stores and couch cushions, than it is for its Ponzu dipping sauce.
7360 Beverly Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Grace blends refined decor featuring clean lines, subdued lighting and a
modern take on cuisine packaged inside a menu that flips like a chic
designer clipboard. Succeeding in passing off gourmet without coming across
as too limited, Grace's executive chef Neal Fraser introduces more
conventional classifications of cuisine like "new American" type while
organizing a virtual omega-3 fatty acid family reunion with appearances
Scottish salmon and an olive oil-poached halibut served under a warm blanket
of chickpeas. Worth mentioning is one of the best -- if not only -- jelly
doughnut desserts to burst onto LA's fine dining landscape.
8225 Beverly Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90048
The '40s-style supper with good taste and class (from service to cuisine)
has menu items such as the roasted beet salad and black mussels with water
spinach and lobster bearnaise. The signature pot roast with caramelized
onions more than assuages pot roast fans, and the Sunday brunch has some
notable items, too, such the lobster benedict and the pot roast hash. If you
think food is out of this world, then the UFO-like light fixtures will feel
right on theme. Also, Monday night is "Mozzarella Night.
7910 W. Third St.
Los Angeles, CA 90048
Yi's menu reads like an invitation card from a modern art gallery. Named
after the highest form of Chinese cosmic energy, Yi Cuisine has a nice flow
likely because its basic design principle is based on the "Five Elements"
from the 7000-year old Book of Changes or I-Ching. With an outdoor section
that puts people on stage between a bar, indoor dining room and a set of
strategically-lit water sculptures, Yi has the elegance and sophistication
that makes it feel worlds apart from its predecessor. Yi has an ongoing
exhibition of contemporary Asian style dishes that have enough flavors to
help you justify picking each work of art apart. Albacore sashimi with a
warm garlic-soy sauce and organic miso and red curry bronzed black cod are
superb eye-candy, good enough to look at and even better to taste- as are
the sesame-rubbed flatiron steak and grilled asparagus with an Asian
