Since Ca‰Ûª Brea opened on La Brea Avenue in 1990, its mood has cooled from in-crowd hot-spot to reliable standby, but its solid Northern Italian fare has not flagged over time. Specialties like beef carpaccio and veal osso buco remain predictably tasty, and the more unusual standouts ‰ÛÒ including pan-fried shrimp cakes with onion confit, roast boneless duck breast in balsamic-morello cherry sauce and Kurobuta pork chops in gorgonzola-green fig sauce ‰ÛÒ continue to delight. The Italian-focused wine list features a smattering of Barolos and quite a few Amarones, and dessert also trades in Italian indulgence with selections like the ricotta cheesecake in strawberry, blueberry and vanilla sauce. The Venetian-style dining room is richly appointed with goldenrod walls, tapestry-like upholstery and artwork by Yuroz, while the brick patio makes for a sunny dining spot.
Bann infuses traditional East Asian cuisine with modern culinary adaptations to create an expansive menu that captures the distinct flavors of Korea's diverse tastescape. Masters of Korean comestibles use natural ingredients to prepare dishes in an open kitchen where diners can behold their flame-wielding skills as open nostrils catch the wafting aromas of exotic spices. Additionally, all tables are fitted with smokeless grills so guests can watch their succulent servings sizzle tableside. Doo boo kae nip ($8), an appetizer of bell peppers, soft tofu, and scallions swathed in fresh frocks of sesame leaves is a great launching pad for chew-infused conversations. After premeal noshing, order a juicy kal bi, a boneless beef short rib ($28), or a yang nyum dak, a tender chicken breast stuffed with five organic grains and glazed with honey and chili ($18). Hungry herbivores can enjoy the bi bim bap ($12), a heaping helping of steamed rice decorated with seasoned and marinated veggies to stop tongues from diving taste-buds first into hot woks.
A Buddha statue sits serenely against one wall inside Lotus, a spot that's part art venue, part restaurant, and part indoor hookah garden. Stalks of bamboo support the bar and the tables where diners grasp sushi with chopsticks or submerge thinly sliced steak, seasonal vegetables, and other morsels into Japanese Shabu-Shabu filled with boiling kelp water.
Fruity smoke drifts through the open space of the hookah garden, melding with fragrant steam from cups of hot tea. Egyptian rugs and massive cushions create an opulent, relaxing vibe for puffing away or sipping a cocktail.
In an opulent, Eastern-inspired dining room that steeps in the scents of intoxicating spices, Nirvana blends classic Indian cuisine with the sophistication of Beverly Hills. Chefs call on both traditional Indian grilling methods and the excitement of new flavors to prepare an assortment of unusual dishes, ranging from unique curries and tandoori breads to whole legs of lamb marinated in Indian rum and spices. Beyond the vibrant mural and white booths of the dining room, the lounge and bar lure patrons in with the comfort of canopied beds, damask sofas, and the tranquil gaze of a giant Buddha's head. A flowing river—sealed with glass to protect feet from above and seafood escapees from below—runs along the floor and leads guests through each of the restaurant's distinct areas.
The Churchill seems to be the result of a fold in time, where weekend DJs spin in view of a vintage photo booth. Its interior exudes a weathered chic: communal tables, built from reclaimed wood, sit beneath antique mirrors and steampunk-style lighting. On the patio, a fireplace burns merrily, a glimmering part of the half-rustic, half-industrial ambiance. Though the decor harkens to a number of bygone eras, the food stays spontaneous and current. An array of house-cured meats and pickled vegetables add an artisanal touch to the menu of rotating American plates, which range from warm bread with seasonal marmalade to a hanger steak with duck fat fries. They pair well with the bar's 20 craft beers, or with expertly mixed cocktails such as the Bulldog—milagro blanco blended with passion fruit, pineapple, serrano, and lime. Those who don't have time to stay and sip can pick up slices of wood-fired pizza or scoops of homemade ice cream at the takeaway window, which serves as a wormhole to 1942 when guests aren’t looking.
