THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rolling Stone Los Angeles Restaurant Review

: The iconic rock and roll magazine has opened Rolling Stone Los Angeles, the flagship of what surely augurs a far-reaching franchise. Close to the Kodak Theater on Hollywood Boulevard, diners can feel like rock stars lounging in sleek red leather circular booths, surrounded by classic photos of guitar legends. An American menu by executive chef Christopher Ennis (Stout, Crown Bar) starts off with appetizers like Dungeness crab-stuffed mushrooms and smoked trout toasts. Mains don’t stray far from the traditional, but exhibit top ingredients and haute accompaniments, like pan-roasted salmon on a bed of wilted baby spinach with capers and golden raisins, or grilled rack of lamb with black quinoa. Larger appetites can tuck into a cowboy bone-in rib-eye, and casual diners will find flatbreads, burgers and salads; small bites are also served in the eye-popping downstairs lounge. The bar itself is a lively spot, and mixologist Ryan Magarian consulted on the cocktail program, which features some seductive libations. And, if two bars aren’t enough for a restaurant, hotties can also flock to the attached VIP lounge B-Side where “liquid magicians” mix up culinary cocktails using the seasonal farm-to-glass approach.
