Cicada Restaurant Review:

It doesn't get much more glamorous than this in L.A. Located in the historic Oviatt Building, Cicada occupies what was once a haberdashery, with a design inspired by an Art Deco oceanliner from the ’20s. The 30-foot ceilings, supported by soaring hand-carved maple columns, are etched in gold leaf, while a mezzanine level is lined with colorful murals. Also upstairs is a swanky bar with sofas and leather club chairs that invite guests to relax with a cocktail before dinner, or linger with a grappa afterwards. The restaurant, loaded with precious Lalique glass, is surely among the most dramatic dining environments in town, making it ideal for romantic outings. The modern Italian menu offers starters such as pan seared scallops with sweet yellow corn and asparagus, and an iceberg wedge with blue cheese dressing. Entrées include almond-crusted Atlantic salmon and braised short ribs. With its grand space, Cicada is a popular venue for special events, so be sure to check that the restaurant is open for dinner on the date of your desired visit. Admission tickets are required for all guests with or without dinner.
