Inn of the Seventh Ray Restaurant Review

: Located in the heart of Topanga Canyon, the restaurant's main building retains much of its history from the 1930s, when it was a private retreat, church, garage, gas station and auto junkyard. Inspired by its one-time holy sanctuary spirit, the owners transformed the place into one of the most romantic restaurants in Los Angeles. It starts with the drive through the canyon, then to the tables spread about the garden under gorgeous trees, and along the winding creek, and ends with the gift store on the way out. The owners initially introduced the restaurant as vegetarian, but have departed from that concept. Chef Bradley Miller now oversees the kitchen. Appetizers might include diver scallops with vegetable succotash and beef tartare with 65-degree egg while entrées may range from crispy vegan duck with herbed soba noodles to oven-roasted Prime filet mignon accompanied by potato-goat cheese-artichoke cake, caramelized sherry cippolini onions and truffle. The bucolic and soothing setting (we prefer the outside rather than the indoor dining room, still bearing the stained-glass of its past) is a good excuse to linger and peruse the quite substantial wine list, boasting over 400 selections from around the world.
