The Fleur Room is a reservation-only cocktail bar from the hospitality group behind Tao, Lavo, Beauty & Essex, and the Highlight Room. If you love drama you will get it here as they serve their theatrical cocktails in a tucked-away lounge space beside the Lavo in West Hollywood. 

The cocktail menu was designed by Craig Schoettler and includes ingredients like flowers, tiramisu dust, rose air, cotton candy, and cucumber ice. The provocative atmosphere of the club is complemented by a carefully curated cocktail menu that includes fresh juices, in-house created syrups and infusions, and elements of surprise such as theatrical vapors and dry ice presentations. The Fleur Room is open from Thursday to Saturday.

Imagine carrying a silver tray to dine in a museum! Meet  Lulu. Despite being hidden away in a courtyard inside the Hammer Museum, this delightful eatery is anything but ordinary. Lulu rewards visitors who take a lunchtime break from understanding the art under David Tanis' direction with a little assistance from none other than Alice Waters. The fresh produce that is put on display is more than just a design, it is the hint to the philosophy of this restaurant, where the three-course and à la carte menus change daily.

Cooking heavily depends on the seasons while allowing the ingredients to shine. A  recent meal of Meyer lemon gelato, chicken saltimbocca, and blood orange citrus salad always proves that the hyper-seasonal and local ingredients are outstanding. Don’t forget to try their delicious cocktails like Prairie Gimlet or Ruby Red Paloma from their drinks menu, which also contains other drinks like beer and fruit soda made from seasonal fruits. And if you are a non-alcoholic person you can have coffee with your food.

The more informal Bicyclette Bistro of Walter and Margarita Manzke is housed in the same building as their eponymous gourmet dining concept. A ten-course tasting menu with a modernized French approach, Californian influences, and Asian elements will be served here.

There is creativity everywhere. A round of boudin blanc and a plate of Wolfe Ranch quail are paired with a sauce made of aged balsamic vinegar, grated frozen torchon of foie gras, and black truffle jus. Pure luxury is a Dover sole accompanied by a morel mushroom stuffed with porcini filling and sauce vin jaune. They offer beverage pairings that are specially designed for the cuisine and a full wine cellar. You will also get a sommelier on-site to answer all your queries related to the wine and even suggest you a good wine pairing with your food if the suggested one does not suit your palate. You can also try their vintage cocktail program, it is extremely interesting but a bit expensive.

Lumière is a casual brasserie-style restaurant with French cuisine that is tucked away inside the Fairmont Century Plaza. The welcoming staff is there to provide advice and discuss their personal favorites, but you'll want to splurge on a variety of classics like fruits de Mer and steak fries, if only for the mouthwatering fries.

Start your meal by ordering the rich chicken liver mousse with an olive jam or try the five-year-aged Iberico ham, Bayonne Iberico, or Fermin Iberico ham from the charcuterie menu. A tasty onion soubise is served on top of seared sea bass on the plate as the main course. Then, for dessert, crème brûlée is always a winner thanks to its pure vanilla flavor and rich caramelized crust. You will also get an extensive option of cocktails and wine by the glass along with beers. Try refreshing cocktails like F. Scott Spritzgerald, Bad & Bijou, and if you like more traditional drinks go for their C.P. Old Fashioned. 

Address:

2025 Avenue Of The Stars

Los Angeles – 79 – 149 USD

Even if the occasion for dressing up and feeling happy is the end of the week, this no-expense-spared location is ideal. Before you even take a mouthful of the delicious meal from Chef/Partner Brendan Collins, the live fire on the wood-burning grill will create a sensory experience that will have you salivating.

It perfectly captures the traditional masculine steakhouse style, complete with dry-aged steaks on display. The cuisine is a traditional ode to meat with luxurious touches. You can also look for separate sections for caviar and Champagne.
