The Polo Lounge has been the favorite breakfast spot and watering hole for generations of stars and Hollywood deal-makers. Guests enjoy indoor and outdoor seating for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and late-night suppers. Lunch and dinner are served with piano accompaniment alternating with light jazz on the patio during the long summer nights. Jazz music is also featured during Sunday Brunch. In the evening guests can come to relax and enjoy one of our many specialty cocktails or one of our old favorites.

Taste on Melrose is Melrose Avenue friendliest neighbor, homey yet sophisticated. With its relaxed setting, updated American comfort cuisine and eminently moderate prices, Taste on Melrose offers everything that people are looking for in a neighborhood restaurant. Located in the mids of the swanky stretch of trend setting Melrose Avenue with the likes of Marc Jacobs and Diane Von Furstenburg. Taste on Melrose is a neighborhood favorite for stylish Angelinos with a preference for elegant surroundings and a comforting, laid-back dining experience. NOW FULL BAR.<br /><br />

"Taste has always been a good place to go. GREAT Mac n Cheese!!!!! ...but they need to put together some new items on their menu because I am getting bored of the same old stuff :/ The crowd is also changing and not for the good, I didn't realize that the Abbey crowd was relocating here... That's the thing with LA nothing stays good for long until the crowds ruin whatever is left... Hang in there Taste, well we will see..........."

Gulfstream was inspired by the classic seafood houses from America"s culinary history. In Newport Beach, an elegant building awaits where Pacific oysters are shucked to order and the exhibition kitchen opens to the dining room to excite the senses. In Los Angeles, a secluded perch above Santa Monica Boulevard is the setting for a menu of rotating specialties including the Cedar Plank Salmon, true Dover Sole and Creole BBQ Shrimp. All of our fish is served within 24 hours of being caught and you will also find a plentiful selection of more terrestrial fare as our Hawaiian Rib-Eye or the Crispy Chicken Sandwich.

"I have to say this place never lets me down or my stomach.... I wish they would spice up their menu once in a while.. but everything on the menu tastes great. Always comfortable, attentive staff and a good bar selection make me a happy camper. I come here about 3 times a month and am happy to have her close by at my side. Always good, you won't be disappointed...."

Guests dining in Beverly Hills enjoy sitting outside and Via Alloro is the place for them. This is the first restaurant in the area to offer more than 100 patio seats, which wrap around the building so you can see and be seen! Guests at Giacomino’s and Tanino’s restaurants include actors, actresses, politicians, sports stars, business people, neighbors and tourists…they have so many regular guests and everyone is treated like family! Outside seating at Via Alloro has a different atmosphere in each area too and inside there are 34 seats with an additional 20 seats in the lounge. Speaking about the lounge, from 7 flat screen TVs guests will be able to watch sports all the time from basketball, baseball, ice hockey, American and European Football. You will also be able to eat at the bar for lunch and dinner too.

At Connie and Ted’s you’ll find simply prepared fish and shellfish, inspired by the classic clam shacks, oyster bars, and fish houses, that dot the New England Seaboard and the Western Coast.<br /><br />Enjoy one (or two) of 24 California craft beers on tap, while sampling from our large variety of oysters, clams and shellfish, shucked to order, at our Raw Bar. Wind down the day with a classic cocktail at the bar, or enjoy a warm lobster roll outside on the covered, open-air patio overlooking Santa Monica Boulevard.<br /><br />

"We had high hopes from all the hype on this place, but hype is all we got. Over priced boring seafood. Needs more creativity and stop asking such high prices for mediocre food geeeeesh!!!! If they come to my house I will charge them double for what they get for the money. Don't waste your time here or your $$$$$"

Nestled in the canyons of Bel Air, SHU is a dining experience like no other - a fusion of Japanese, Italian and Latin flavors and influences. The menu features traditional dishes as well as signature offerings, inspired by Giacomino Drago’s love of blending Japanese, Italian and Latin cuisines. SHU’s environment is well-suited to singles, couples and families. The bar seats up to ten people and there is a special booth that seats six people. Private dinning room is available to accommodate up to 12 guests. Signature dishes included halibut carpaccio with sun-dried tomato, Kobe Beef sashimi and albacore sashimi with shaved truffles.

"Some things never change. Was average, the food, the people, the Mondrian scene is average as usual. Decent décor, but food needs help, not bad just could improve some and would be a good spot from time to time. Nothing to write home about.... Keep trying Mondrian keep tryin'"
