E.P. & L.P. Restaurant Review

: At E.P. & L.P. ("extended play" and "long play"), Australian chef Louis Tikaram calls up his Fijian, Chinese and Indian roots. The self-styled E.P. "Asian eating house" on the second floor offers dishes like Fijian-style shrimp ceviche with coconut milk, lime and chili; sticky spare ribs with five spice caramel; and wood-grilled Cornish hen with red peanut curry. Meanwhile, the 4,000-square-foot rooftop area hosts two bars: L.P. rooftop lounge (open Mon.-Fri. 5 p.m.-2 a.m., Sat.-Sun. 12 p.m.-12 a.m.) and Frankie's Private Bar (open Wed.-Sat. 8 p.m.-2 a.m.). At L.P., guests can nibble on pork belly bao and enjoy fabulous views of the Hollywood Hills. Specialty cocktails are available by the glass or pitcher, plus there's a section devoted to alcoholic bubble tea drinks, such as the Californication (Panamanian rum, Campari, pineapple, lime, toasted coconut syrup, passionfruit boba pearls and a dark rum float).
