L.A. Prime Restaurant Review

: Los Angeles’s largest convention hotel, The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites, Los Angeles, is familiar to Angelenos due to its distinctive architecture, and to people around the world who have seen the landmark featured in dozens of movies. Before taking an outdoor elevator up to the 35th floor restaurant, we suggest a drink in the rotating lounge a floor below. It takes an hour for the lounge to go through a complete rotation, which can help diners choose which view they want to enjoy during dinner, as the static restaurant also features a 360-degree view of the city. L.A. Prime takes pride in providing a grand dining experience, with a unique setting, quiet, elegant atmosphere and fine cuisine. Chef Andreas Nieto is quite familiar with the local produce and cuisine of the Golden State after cooking in California for many years. We’ve found the rack of lamb to be without fault, while the porterhouse steak was not quite on point. As this is “A New York steakhouse,” so the slogan says, you’ll also find typical sides like potato gratin or jumbo asparagus. Finish with chocolate mousse or crème brûlée. If the view doesn't induce vertigo, the 32-page wine list might. It offers bottles from all over the world at a variety of prices, with an emphasis on France and California, as well as many verticals.
