Patina Review

Opened by chef Joachim Splichal, Patina has downtown's most striking address: inside the Frank Gehry–designed Walt Disney Concert Hall. The contemporary space, surrounded by a rippled "curtain" of rich walnut, is an elegant, dramatic stage for the acclaimed restaurant's contemporary French cuisine. Seasonally changing specialties include copious amounts of foie gras, butter-poached lobster, and medallions of venison served with lady apples. Finish with a hard-to-match cheese tray (orchestrated by a genuine maître fromager) and the elegant fromage blanc soufflé served with house-made bourbon ice cream.

    One of the best places to eat in this world

    This restaurant is simply outstanding even compared with the best this world has to offer. We know nearly all the most acclaimed restaurants in the world from old (and even new) world three star (guide Michelin)restauarants allover Europe to places like Jean Georges in New York and many more. We had the four course lunch menu (at $49 a true bargain) with 4 glasses of matching wines (at $25 nearly a gift) wonderfully prepared and presented outstanding quality of products and preparation. Service got (after beeing asked for) the right slow space for a restaurant of this class. So we spend two and a have hours of almost orgasmic delights of smell and taste and with champagne as Apéritif two 1,0 litre bottles of San Pellegrino 8 generously poured glasses of delightful wines 3 espressi after lunch, we spend ridiculous amount of $250 (generous tip included) for the two of us. Whenever we'll come back to LA Patina is the place for heavenly cooked meals.
