THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED SIMON L.A. Restaurant Review

: As you make your way to chef Kerry Simon's restaurant SIMON L.A., be sure to admire the glass structure in front of the Sofitel's façade, the lobby and STONE ROSE Lounge. The high-walled dining room is elegantly divided with curved, cocoon-like see-through screens making most tables semi-private booths. In his spare time, Simon replaces his cooking utensils with an electric guitar, and he's chosen rock music to elevate the ambience and attract a young and hip Angeleno clientele. The kitchen, overseen by the hotel's executive chef Marius Blin, turns out a creative take on Modern American cuisine. Starters include the signature tuna dynamite (tuna with lump crab and red chili aïoli) and organic salads made with farmer's market ingredients. Steaks and wood-fired pizzas comprise a large share of the entrées, but there are also comfort food classics like extra-tender braised short ribs, Simon's special meatloaf and brick roasted chicken. We recommend the seared ahi tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes, roasted shiitake mushrooms and baby bok choy. For dessert, many diners can't resist indulging their inner child with the "junk food sampler," composed of caramel popcorn, cookies, cotton candy, coconut puffs, rice crispy treats, donuts and a milkshake. The wine list is elaborate with a large selection of California and French wines, at reasonable prices. The outdoor patio, the private dining rooms and the chef's table are other great seating options whether you come for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
