Ray's offers a bold, farm-to-table Mediterranean menu based on seasonal, local ingredients and the restaurant's wood burning oven and grill. A separate bar and lounge, Stark Bar, offers handcrafted, seasonal cocktails and a dynamic menu of small plates.

"Ray's is a must for us whenever we visit LACMA. The chacuterie plate was excellent, as were the chopped salad and the stone fruit plate with burrata cheese. The fruits were perfectly ripe, as they must be. Charming manager Martin always comes over to chat. Sitting outside and people-watching is always a pleasure here. Highly recommended."

"Topolobampo is of course an outstanding restaurant in terms of creativity, flavors, freshness and service. I have had great meals both here and at Frontera Grill. This time, of 12 plates ordered among 4 people, only 2-3 of them were recognizable (goat and salmon).The explanation of the menu was like a Master's level lecture. I could not tell what I was eating. Sauces were poured at the table without explanation. My husband could not tell me what he was eating. Everything was delicious, but I felt like I had tasted 100 things by the end, without knowing what or why. I would like Rick Bayless to go a little bit back to basics."

"This was our fourth visit here. I have had the cassoulet three times. The first and this time it was very good; the time in between, the duck was stringy and hardly edible. Everything else we have ever had was very good: fish, frog legs, escargots, steak. This time, there were no French people in evidence on the staff. The usual servers were not here. Everyone was very nice, but I miss the French folks. I don't know that we will take the time out of our trip to the airport to eat here again."
