The BoardRoom Restaurant Review

: Situated under the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and adjacent to Kendall's Brasserie & Bar, this Patina Restaurant Group lounge offers cocktails, bar bites and live music, and has a sultry, dim-lit 40’s décor that hearkens back to post-war France. Mixologist Evan Charest (Ray’s and Stark Bar) creates a cocktail list with punches that serve four to six people, a three-course cocktail tasting menu ($32) and other concoctions like the F. Scott Fitzgerald (Cognac, Laubade Armagnac, Lillet Blanc, maple syrup). The bar menu includes raw oysters with absinthe jelly, uni deviled eggs, an escargot shooter and oxtail poutine.
