Tavern is the third restaurant from the chef and sommelier team of Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne, who also own Lucques restaurant and AOC winebar. This is their West Los Angeles outpost, which serves as a local gathering spot for the Brentwood crowd. Chicly designed by Jeffrey Alan Marks, Tavern encompasses three separate, yet connected spaces: a glass roofed atrium dining room, a large blue walled bar and a café space called the Larder that features casual dining, bakery, retail and prepared foods to go. The restaurant serves Suzanne Goin’s signature California/Mediterranean cuisine with just a touch of a classic American influence.

"Lovely lighting, tables not scrunched together, soft shell crab appetizer excellent, mussel and garlic sausage excellent,
waiters helpful but not overbearing, responsive to our needs but never rushed, familiar with food and dishes,
very pretty setting, nicely dressed clients, everything was fresh, crisp, clean and comfortable. Noise level was
just a mild hum so we could all hear. Very Very comfortable.

Situated on "Love Street" in fabled Laurel Canyon, Pace serves up organic Italian food with a Northern California twist. Head Chef and Owner Sandy Gendel fuses organics with art and community in his treasured progeny. <br /> <br />Pace’s menu features classic homemade pasta dishes, original salads created with seasonal produce, to-die-for entrees, and inventive ciabatta-crust pizzas. Organic ingredients from local farmer’s markets are hand-picked at least twice a week so that “each morsel travels from the farm to your mouth in less than three days . . . and is infused with the care afforded by organic cultivation methods.” Gendel also remains committed to supporting the local agriculture community.

"My son took his new girlfriend here for dinner. I received a text. "This place is phenomenal. It is perfect. The food
is perfect. We love it." He is a tough critic and she is Italian. They were very happy.

"It is a perfect place to be. Perfect. The entrance through the gardens and past the swan
into the dining room where every waiter is excellent and professional. That is
the only word to describe it. Perfect. Hopefully your dining guests will rise
to the level of your working staff and the sheer beauty of the hotel.
