    Ray's Swizzle: With lime juice, pineapple syrup, muddled blackberries, and oranges. Skews more tart than sweet, which allows the subtle but smooth Don Q Cristal rum to shine through at the finish. Read more

    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

    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.

    The chili first course is insane and go for the hangar steak. Can't wait for this place in the summer. The patio is incredible wither the views of the hills and LACMA.

    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?

    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!

    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.
