Nestled on the ground floor of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Joachim Splichal’s haute restaurant hums with perfectly-harmonized service and plates with a perfect symphony of flavors. Since 1989, Patina has been offering exquisite contemporary French fare of the caliber usually reserved for healthy expense accounts. Executive chef Paul Lee has crafted edible art within a three- or six-course tasting menu ($85 and $125, respecitvely), with dishes that include Hudson Valley foie gras with clementines and pistachios, and squab with potato gnocchi. A vegetarian menu is also available, as is an exquisite cheese cart that rolls around post-meal.

I don't think I've had better service anywhere else in LA. Patina excels at fine-dining and all that encompasses: exceptional service, amazing wine, a tasting menu that boggles your mind and a setting that makes you feel so many feelings (mostly, "I can't believe I'm here"). It's a shame that most people view it as TOO white tablecloth, TOO hoity-toity, because it's really not. Yes, you're going to be dropping a chunk of change here, but it's well worth it, and the staff makes you feel incredibly comfortable and welcome.
