THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Foxtail Restaurant Review

: From the same restaurant group that energized the sushi scene in Los Angeles with its two Katsuya restaurants (Brentwood and Hollywood) comes Foxtail, in the heart of West Hollywood. Though its Santa Monica Boulevard address is hard to spot, you’ll ease right into this comfortable and elegant Art Deco-style supper club---it reminds us somewhat of Maxim's in Paris and Biba in London. The dark walls are highlighted by tones of emerald green, copper, pink and silver, and shine with touches of brass throughout the low-ceilinged bar area and dining room. Make sure to grab a house cocktail created by mixologist Ryan Magarian before dinner, or later upstairs in the lounge where you can dance away the effects. To stay on par with the rebirth of the brasserie-bistro cuisine, chef Antonia Lofaso, who spent six years at Spago, has composed a delectable menu with strong French influences, seen in the soupe à l'oignon, frisée salad and moules marinières. These dishes are offered with more modern versions of tuna tartare (one of the best we've tasted) and lobster ravioli that layers its components. Continue with the half roasted chicken with Yukon potato gratin, and the tender and tasty steak frites (a hefty $42, but this is Angus filet and truffled fries). Let us not forget the seared big eye tuna served à la Niçoise. For lighter appetites, opt for the croque monsieur or madame or the chopped salad, which can be accompanied by fresh lobster for an extra charge. Desserts are in sync with the European style of the menu and include Mandarin panna cotta, fresh berry cobbler served with fromage blanc ice cream and lavender pot de crème (a must). Though the wine list is short, it carries a $2,000 Château Mouton Rothschild and a $2,500 Methuselah (six liters) of Moët Champagne.

Foxtail is stunning inside. We felt like we were in a secret supper club from another era. If you can't make it past the ropes into the lounge, do try to go for dinner at least.
