Patina Restaurant Review

: PATINA HAS REOPENED WITH A NEW EXECUTIVE CHEF. Since Patina relocated to the Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles in 2003, the chefs at the helm of the kitchen have been maintaining Patina’s reputation as the crown jewel of the culinary kingdom created by uber-chef Joachim Splichal. A few decorative tweaks were made to the room since it first opened: new upholstery on the banquettes, the impressive wood table wrapping around a central pillar, and the beams lightened from grey to white. Just like at the Hall next door, a performance is put on by the entire staff, from the sommelier to the servers, especially when it comes to the “guéridons” with the caviar selections, the ceremonial cutting of the milk-fed veal rack, and the masterful service of cheeses and teas. Wine connoisseurs will very much appreciate the extensive and beautiful wine list.

not cheap, but a great place for out-of-towners who have never experienced downtown LA.
 
Stellar and getting better

I try each trip to LA to carve out time for Patina and its the highly regarded Cal-French cuisine. The Chef's tasting menu has been a longtime favorite experience, and recently, I have noticed a marked improvement over the tasting menus I have always loved. Patina, true to its name, just keeps getting better.
