Among other things, France is known for its unbelievable cuisine. Whether you prefer bistro comfort food like veal milanese or lighter fare, like poached salmon with mussels, it’s safe to say that there is something for everyone in this country.
However, for many who call the United States home, jetsetting to France isn’t that easy. After all, depending on where you leave from, getting to Paris takes at least seven hours. Luckily, when you’re staying in Los Angeles, you don’t have to go far to find delicious French cuisine.
Patina is an upscale dining establishment located at 141 South Grand Avenue. The restaurant is housed inside the awe-inspiring Walt Disney Concert Hall and Master Chef Joachim Splichal’s culinary skills are equally impressive.
Patina offers enthusiastic diners the chance to enjoy tasting menus made from seasonal ingredients. If you prefer to select your own plates, there’s an everyday dinner and dessert menu.
Los Angeles residents and tourists can choose everything from traditional French appetizers like a farm-raised caviar selection to morel risotto with creme fraiche. Main courses include loup de mer with sweet peppers and black cod confit served with tarbais beans.
Don’t forget about dessert. Finish off your meal with blueberry and lemon battera and formage blanc souffle. Patina also offers an extensive selection of rare after dinner drinks like port and sweet wines.
Reservations are recommended but not required.
If you love to cook, you’re well aware that hotels typically don’t offer guests kitchens. To create culinary masterpieces whenever you please, make sure that you stay in an L.A. vacation rental managed by Signature Vacation Homes.
