The Restaurant at The Getty Center Restaurant Review

: If you're visiting the Getty Center and simply must dine more elegantly than at its various caféterias and food carts, book a table at its stunningly modern, starched white restaurant. What you'll get for your (top) dollar are table settings worthy of a museum and beautiful-to-behold contemporary cuisine presentations. In addition, the view is breathtaking, especially at sunset. With executive chef Mayet Cristobal and chef de cuisine Matt Lee at the helm, expect top quality coming from the kitchen. Dinner appetizers include a beet, goat cheese and baby greens salad, and Dungeness crab cakes paired with smoked paprika aïoli, avocado mousse and crispy prosciutto, while entrées feature filet mignon with whipped potatoes, garlic spinach, sherry glazed onion, horseradish cream and red wine reduction sauce. End your meal with the peach apple cobbler accompanied by pecan praline ice cream or house-made ice cream or sorbet. Also available are themed prix-fixe menus corresponding to special exhibitions. At brunch, guests can select from classics like french toast or more unusual options such as duck confit hash with pee wee potatoes, sprouting broccoli, kale sprouts, salsa roja, cotija cheese, scallions and cilantro.
