It’s only fitting that Los Angeles’ most stunning architectural landmark also houses one of the city’s brightest star restaurants, Patina. Nestled into Walt Disney Concert Hall, über-chef Joachim Splichal’s flagship restaurant is a culinary destination not to be missed, as much for its luxurious surroundings, stellar service and lively crowd as for executive chef Tony Esnault’s divine presentations.
