Pearl's Liquor Bar Restaurant Review

: Next door to the Whisky a Go Go, this 1920’s bohemian speakeasy fantasy unfolds into a dazzling three-level restaurant/lounge that offers great views from its patios. Glittering chandeliers, stamped-tin ceilings, antiques and marble bars dress up the interiors, while a second-floor patio sports ivy and Astroturf, a fireplace and photo booth. Typical Sunset Strip scenesters swarm in particularly on weekend nights, but get there early or reserve the rooftop’s best seat --- the end table overlooking the boulevard, somewhat romantically glowing under the neon sign. Cocktails are smart and creative and just the right kind of fancy without being fussy, perked up with fresh rosemary swizzles and pretty strawberry-jalapeño-lime ice spheres. The menu is reasonably priced and offers some ok choices. Thin slices of short rib, laced with mole and sesame, served on a chewy barley risotto is a standout. Crispy broccolini gets a nice zing from Calabrian chili, and flatbreads like the “fennel flight” are fine for noshing. Squid ink gnocchi are less than pillowy, but the fried chicken with savory polenta and braised chard is a better option. Lunch is less of a crush, and brunch features egg Benedicts.
