 96th Street Bistro at Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel
96th Street Bistro at Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel
Many years ago, before the airport came to be, this area was known as Rancho Sausal Redondo, part of a large Mexican land grant. The land on which the hotel now sits was eventually leased to tenant farmers who grew wheat, barley and beans. In recognition of the heritage of this land, we present to you the 96th Steet Bistro, named after this "dry farming' site on Airport and 96th Street. The 96th Street Bistro features only California cuisine which is a reflection of the diversity and ingenuity of the people of California with a fusion of food from all over the world. But with a twist of local ingredients. With over half of the entire nation's fruits and vegetables grown in California, we decided we had all the ingredients we needed right in our backyard. Committed to serving only the freshest ingredients provided by local farmers and ranchers, the 96th Street Bistro promises bold and imaginative dishes, so you can be sure you're enjoying extraordinary California cuisine.

"Great dining near LAX. The 96th Street Bistro is not your typical hotel restaurant, but has a good variety of menu choices, excellent quality entrees and great service. The filet I had was cooked perfectly."

"Very enjoyable dining experience. Everyone is friendly from the valet, to the hostess and servers. Enjoyed the duck special entree - excellent, flavorful, and not greasy. 30% off bottled wine special on Sundays really made this a great dining experience."

"Had fresh seafood (sablefish) entree, and requested a different side from what should have accompanied it. Waiter happily accommodated my request, resulting in very enjoyable dining experience. Would definitely recommend the Red Marlin - it has been consistently good."

In the casual and comfortable setting of Emeril's Chop House, the warm design evokes the timeless craftsmanship of American industry– bronze metal ribboned screens outline the entrance, earth tone colors of leather & beige mohair furnishings contrast with the restaurant’s transparent reflective surfaces & circular crystal pendant light fixtures. The chef’s food bar has a leather panel front & hand finished white-washed oak millwork, & overlooks the open-action kitchen. Two curved wine cellars with polished steel wine racks separate the private dining areas from the rest of the space, & are encircled with a splash of red on the custom carpets. The restaurant’s combination of craftsmanship & elegance is perfectly reflected in the original artwork by local artist Michael Kessler, who achieves his effect with layer upon layer of acrylic paint on wood panel & relies on natural gesture to create his organic forms.

"The amberjack fish entree was delicious, as I have found Emeril's to usually be. This time I found the service to be extremely slow - after making a note that we would have 4 servers attending our table that evening, there was a good hours delay between the finishing of our salad and getting our entrees - a bit too long for a restaurant in a gambling casino. Would still recommend for excellnt food."

"Enjoyed an excellent dinner at Filippo Autentica Cucina. The roasted rolled pork special of the day was fabulous, and the service was super attentive. It is a BYOB to allow you to bring your favorite wine. Would definitely recommend dining here."
