The Roof on Wilshire, Los Angeles, CA

The Roof on Wilshire Restaurant Review

: The Roof on Wilshire is actually on the rooftop of The Hotel Wilshire, wrapped around the pool and with great views of the city. Most of the seating --- tables and booths with heaters --- is outdoors, making it a quintessential LA restaurant. Chef Eric Greenspan (Greenspan's Grilled Cheese) knows the city very well, and he has composed an inventive and tasty menu that embraces the diverse cultures of the city of the Angels. Albacore sashimi with pickled cantaloupe, poppy tuile and black sesame purée is a perfect example. We also recommend side dishes such as the creamed corn “elote” with watermelon, pickled rind, cilantro and chili. Bigger appetites might go for the mole glazed lamb shank, half roasted chicken or burger on challah toast with cheddar, sweet dill and onion jam, and steak sauce aïoli. Creativity extends to the desserts, like the “PB&J” beignets. The wine list is limited, so the cocktails are a good option. Among the choices are several variations of mule drinks made with housemade ginger beer.
