Tom Colicchio's Craft in New York City received the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant nationwide in 2002 & five years later brought Craft across the country to join the other "top chefs" in Los Angeles. His new American dishes marry the finest ingredients, haute cuisine and family-style service. Under the execution of Chef de Cuisine Ray England, Craft features produce from local organic farms, all-natural meats & day-boat seafood. With the award-winning architectural design of Bentel and Bentel & under the glow of filament bulbs, diners share dishes that celebrate 'single' ingredients, expertly & simply prepared. <br /><br><br><br />Awarded Three and a Half Stars by S. Irene Virbila of the Los Angeles Times, she states: <br /><br>“The menu offers a master class in contemporary American cuisine. You won’t find recipes with 17 ingredients or unnecessary frills. Each dish relies on simplicity & elegance, superb ingredients & expert execution to make its point."

Irori is located in the seaside city of Marina Del Rey, West Los Angeles. While the neighborhood is home to many sushi restaurants, customer praise for Irori’s attentive service, unique selection of fish, and creative innovation to traditional Japanese interior design are main features of Irori Sushi. Thoughtful touches, such as a tatami floor, a type of mat used as a flooring material in traditional Japanese-style rooms, shoe drawer for a no-shoes policy, and embroidered pillows on wooden floors that simulate the traditional sushi experience, set Irori apart from its peers. You can try Japanese style cuisine at its very best with a huge selection of fresh and delicious sashimi, sushi and rolls. With incredible daily lunch special deals, you can get great prices any day of the week. Irori has a selection from a variety of elaborate and flavorful Chef Special Rolls allowing you to try different flavors throughout your dining experience.

Hamburger Hamlet is an upscale casual dining restaurant established in 1950 by Harry and Marilyn Lewis. The restaurants were packed every night with celebrities and a city-wide reputation for “Simply marvelous food and drink” was soon created. Today, the menu remains true to Marilyn's original commitment to quality and great tasting food. While famous for thick and juicy gourmet burgers, we also offer a wide variety of appetizers, lunch, dinner and brunch entrees, signature soups, salads, sandwiches, fresh fish and steaks, decadent desserts and a full bar!

Porta Via is a neighborhood bistro with a cozy, relaxing atmosphere. Located in the heart of Beverly Hills on Canon Drive, our outdoor dining patio is the perfect place to enjoy the Southern California sun. Our fresh American/Italian cuisine adds to the homey feeling of the restaurant. Regulars (which are a good sign) like the crab cakes, the fried calamari or the beet salad for appetizers. Our chef offers a selection of pastas & entrées including Parmigiano-crusted Halibut, Grilled Salmon, Chicken Paillard or a Grilled Ribeye. Our lunch menu offers our signature salads, burger and a selection of sandwiches. We cater to all dietary constraints and can almost always accommodate any request. <br /><br /><br />We are currently expanding our <br />wine list to bring you interesting and unusual wines to<br />accompany your dining experience.

Bistro Don Giovanni offers a warm and inviting experience with all the personality of a Mediterranean hideaway. Chef Donna Scala’s rustic fare incorporates local fruits, vegetables, meat and fowl into traditional, fresh Italian dishes with her signature, creative flair. Freshly baked breads, local olive oil, beautiful salads, tasty appetizers and homemade pastas are inspired by the bounty of Napa Valley. Main courses offer an array of regionally sourced and highest quality creations of chicken, steaks, burgers and seafood. The bar features hundreds of Napa Valley and Italian wines as well as a host of signature cocktails.

A word from City Winery at the Napa Valley Opera House<br />City Winery is the third of its kind, but a unique homage to wine country, all while indulging the senses: tap wine from 30 local winery partners, a top-notch music venue, a full-service restaurant, and private event space in the heart of Downtown Napa in the historic Opera House.<br /><br />The wines are exceptional: Our tap partners have supplied us with some of the most unique wines in the valley – many are one-time only barrels you won’t find anywhere else. And there is a 400+ bottle list to boot!<br /><br />The dinner menu features Mediterranean-inspired, locally sourced small plates designed to complement the extensive wine list. Burrata, Arancini, Flatbreads, Carpaccio and hearty meat dishes are varied enough to please a diverse crowd over a few rounds of wine. With the evening’s concert serenading you through your meal, dinner at City Winery means there’s always something fun to experience. <br />
