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. The menu features riffs on classic American dishes, starting with snacks of sweet potato crab hush puppies and smoked salmon deviled eggs. Moving on, you might encounter chicken pot pie, garlic herb crusted halibut and a burger topped with garlic mayo, smoked spicy tomato jam, pickle onion marmalade, iceberg lettuce and cheddar skirt on a brioche bun. Desserts continue the theme, with options like chocolate pudding and maple bourbon apple pie. The wine list is limited, so the cocktails are a good option. Among the choices are a blood orange Old Fashioned and a grapefruit ginger daiquiri.
