LALLApalooza Restaurant Review

: After-five revelers select from an extensive martini menu, cooling down with the cucumber and gin-infused “spa-tini” or riding into the sunset on a classic Manhattan. Slip away to an oversize booth and order from the something-for-everyone American menu. From oysters to blue cheese-and-bacon-stuffed steak bites, appetizers cover the bases. There's also a collection of "street tacos," including shrimp, chicken, carne asada and beef. Most patrons opt to drink their Chocolate Cake: Frangelico, Absolut Vanilla and sugared lemon. But this hot-spot is attempting to revive chocolate fondue, too.
