The Whisper Lounge, Los Angeles, CA

The Whisper Lounge Restaurant Review

: Yes, it's located in an outdoor mall --- although The Grove is no ordinary retail destination --- and is better known for its bar than its food, but don’t discount this eatery just because of its setting. Whisper has a supper club vibe and elevated cuisine, making it an unexpected secret tucked away in a corner of this popular complex. Dark wood banquettes and burnt-orange sconces make for an intimate and upscale ambience that’s sure to satisfy the design-conscious. The outdoor lounge, adorned with flowing draperies and streamlined couches, hints at similarly styled Sunset Strip establishments. Executive chef Anthony Jacquet has a sure hand with comfort food and offers items like mac ‘n’ cheese with pancetta, classic Italian-style meatballs and fried chicken. A lamb burger is layered with Brie, cranberry compote and a jalapeño aïoli, which adds personality. For dessert, consider a unique peanut-buttery take on banana cream pie or brownies topped with milk chocolate stout mousse. Look for a surprisingly strong wine list deep in Italy and California, plus first-rate happy hour drink specials and live jazz.
