Culina, Los Angeles, CA

Culina Restaurant Review

: Culina ("kitchen" in Latin) offers an "enoteca" experience with a casual elegant atmosphere in the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. (There's no need to go through the lobby as there's a separate entrance from the driveway of the hotel.) The modern design features earth tones and an eye-catching 25-foot light fixture made of hand-blown bubbles. When weather permits, we prefer to dine al fresco on the patio. Relax under the canopy or at one of the low tables where you might have the opportunity to watch a classic movie projected onto a "screen" of cascading water. Start off with a crudo selection such as yellowtail with persimmon, yuzu ricotta, micro mint and lemon before moving on to house-made pastas, pizzas and main dishes such as Mediterranean sea bass with fennel, citrus, English pea purée and bottarga or a half chicken with truffled wild mushrooms and crispy potatoes. Sweet endings include tiramisu, olive oil cake and butterscotch budino, to name a few. Sample compelling cocktails or make selection from the wine program, which has a strong Italian accent but also features cult wines from elsewhere. Culina is a popular destination for power lunches and breakfasts during the week. The lunch special, PRONTO Market Lunch ($35), is a buffet presenting a selection of salads, cheese and charcuterie, a choice of protein and dessert. Vinoteca, an Italian-inspired wine bar, is adjacent to Culina.
