71Above
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

At 71Above, you’d be forgiven for looking up from your meal. On the 71st floor of the US Bank Tower, you’re privy to a nearly 360-degree view of LA, from downtown landmarks to the San Gabriel Mountains. The ...Read the full review

Here’s Looking At You
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

Here’s Looking at You could only be in LA’s Koreatown, the dense ethnic enclave west of Downtown. In a sleek space on busy Sixth Street, Jonathan Whitener, late of ...Read the full review

Kali
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

Kali brings together two Los Angeles fine-dining veterans—chef Kevin Meehan, of the Patina Group, and Drew Langley, formerly of Providence—under one Larchmont-district roof, not far from Paramount Studios. Kali’s interior is a serene evocation of wood and stone—slate floors and bare blond wood tables—no ...Read the full review

Otium
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

Otium impresses well before you walk through its doors, as it sits next to the new, gleaming Broad Museum, whose scalloped façade looms over the restaurant like a massive, airy piece of modern sculpture. It feels airy inside, too, floor-to ceiling glass squared off with rough-hewn wood and ...Read the full review

Augustine
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

Augustine extends the reach of Matthew Kaner and Dustin Lancaster, the formidable wine team at Bar Covell in LA’s Los Feliz neighborhood, to Sherman Oaks. Their partner, Dave Gibbs, moved to the San Fernando Valley to raise a family and found dozens of thirsty, well-heeled, like-minded imbibers looking ...Read the full review

Redbird
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

Redbird, in downtown’s Historic Core, has been one of the most anticipated restaurant openings in LA for what seems like years, since Neal Fraser and Amy Knoll Fraser signed a lease on the Vibiana, a majestic declassified cathedral building not far from City Hall. The Frasers teamed up ...Read the full review

Night+Market Song
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

The original Night+Market was founded in 2010, when former film student Kris Yenbamroong sublet a portion of his family’s restaurant (Talesai) to explore his fascination with Bangkok street food. It quickly became a not-very-underground sensation, but remained oddly located on the tail end of the tourist-laden Sunset Strip. ...Read the full review

Commissary/Pot
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

Back in 2008, Roy Choi became famous as the chef behind the Korean taco, the dish that launched a thousand food trucks and a national mobile culinary craze. Last year he partnered with the Sydell Group on some Wilshire Boulevard bricks and mortar, with two restaurants at the Line Hotel ...Read the full review

République
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

Outside of downtown, the dining epicenter has shifted from the Mozza multiplex (the Pizzeria, Osteria and carnivore emporium Chi Spacca) to République, in the building formerly occupied by Campanile (and once, long ago, Charlie Chaplin’s offices). By thrusting the bar into the courtyard, altering table heights and ...Read the full review

Chez Marvin
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

Comfort of a different sort is found at Chez Marvin, a small wine bar on Beverly. With its tiny proscenium of bare tables and long white-marble-topped bar, it’s the sort of place that Los Angeles has always been short on: comfortable, affordable and unpretentious. The food is spot ...Read the full review

Maude
review by Patrick J. Comiskey

If République is pan-Angeleno, Maude is, in a sense, its opposite, a tiny, cozy, 26-seat Beverly Hills jewel box manned by Aussie Curtis Stone, who happens to be Top Chef’s current emcee. Celebrity chefs bring with them an expectation of swank and glamour, whether in their modish ...Read the full review
