    I used to recommend cocktails here. Who doesn't love getting slightly tipsy and wandering through modern art? However, they've revamped the cocktail menu to be much shorter, with cheap spirits at $15

    Grab a 329 Lager by Golden Road and relax before you enjoy some art.

    This restaurant-bar gets everything right: Mediterranean bites from chef Kris Morningside, great cocktails like the Far (east) Manhattan, and outdoor seating next to LACMA's street light installation.

    Great service. Great cocktails. Get the chips. If you are cold, they hand out blankets.

    Great cocktails and fresh food. Always new additions on the menu. Service is good too!

    The burger is absolutely insane. Their pastas are fresh and prepared traditionally and the lollipop kale is enough to keep you coming back regularly.

    Excellent ! Food and Cocktails

    Although the menu is vegetable-intensive, it is far, far from butter-free, but Ray's, named in honor of the late film producer Ray Stark, may be the restaurant that this plaza deserves. Read more

    This renowned restaurant-bar gets everything right: refined Mediterranean bites, great cocktails (you'll have the "Far (east) Manhattan," made with masala-infused rye and amaro), and outdoor seating. Read more

    The complementary chips at the bar are homemade. They melt in your mouth.

    Pasta stuffed with truffle rice and almond is delicious.

  • Victor Z.

    The Smokey and the Bandit is one of the smokiest drinks I've ever had and it's amazing.

    Victor Z · December 28, 2013
  • Susan O.

    Fantastic brunch offerings with a beautiful variety of cocktails. Definitely a repeat.

    Cool weather offerings might include his haute version of a chile relleno: a poblano pepper, charred to black, stuffed with zippy housemade venison chorizo, and napped in a suave corn sauce.

  • Jamil Amir G.

    A cute and chill outdoor bar with such ambiance & free parking. Definitely will be returning.

    They are definitely trying, but not enough. Too salty some stuff, too burnt the others. Or maybe it's just me?

    If you come after a concert in Bing, you're likely to see the performers!

    The Coffee and Cigarettes smells delicious and has a refreshingly bitter bite.

    The Foursquare Mayor checked in here 6X in the last 6 days. What a life!

    Star chef Kris Morningstar whips up farm-to-table Mediterranean cuisine at this restaurant, which is adjoined to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

  • Gail H.

    Sit at the bar, the pre prohibition cocktails are a specialty of the bartenders here. Also midweek they will let you sample all the scotch you want, if you play nice!

    Rose wishes cocktail is the jam! Don't wait for a table, grab a seat in the bar area :)

    Delicious and savory items to eat: hanger steak, pork belly, chile, asparagus salad. Drinks: dirty harry & rose wish and lavender dreams- yum! Top of the line service!

  • Lisa

    The Ginger Rogers has zing, the Roses, Wishes & Lavender dreams is more refreshing than sweet, delicious! The BTO's (Better Than Oreos) live up to their name!

    Food came before the drinks. Seriously poor service. At least the service staff was apologetic. Bar menu not offered in the restaurant at all.

    The Mediterranean-inspired menu includes dishes from the restaurant’s wood-burning oven and grill, with an emphasis on farm-to-table, seasonal fare from executive chef Kris Morningstar.

    His lamb’s tongue with beans and niçoise olives is a crunchy evocation of carnitas, while his farro salad is spared the vegetarian blahs by a dice of turnip and crushed pistachio. Read more
