Ray’s & Stark Bar Participates DineLA Winter Restaurant Week

Could not conclude 2011 without stopping by Ray’s & Stark Barnamed one of Esquire’s Best New Restaurants of 2011. Stomach Life was invited to check out Ray’s & Stark Bar towards the end of the year, where Chef and Owner of Playa , John Rivera Sedlar; Chefs and Owners, Steve Samson and Zach Pollack of Sotto, came together for three nights to create a six- course exclusive culinary experience.  The experience was one we do not mind repeating, and we are excited to know that they are participating in DineLa Winter Restaurant Week this month! Sunday Jan. 22-  Friday Feb.3rd.  Join in the experience and check out their unique menu specifically for DineLA restaurant week > MENU.  

The location is enough to make you want to stop by and not just because it sits right behind the “Urban Light” exhibit that was seen in the “No Strings Attached” movie starring Natalie Portman or Ashton Kutcher but because it sits inside of LACMA’s courtyard, a hidden treasure destination that some Angelinos forget is there.  

Ray’s & Stark Bar opened this last year and fits perfectly into LACMA’s modern contemporary theme.  The ”Los Angeles County Museum of Art, known as LACMA has collections that encompass the geographic world and virtually the entire history of art.” Ray’s and Stark Bar builds a similar feel and builds around our favorite idea which is, interpreting food as an art form, and their dishes are beautiful. 

"Ray’s and Stark Bar has been hailed by Esquire as “One of the best new restaurants of 2011” and by the Los Angeles Times as “a feast for the senses.” The Mediterranean-inspired menu includes dishes from the restaurant’s wood-burning oven and grill, with an emphasis on farm-to-table, seasonal fare from executive chef Kris Morningstar. To drink: seasonal cocktails, a California-centric wine list, and artisan beers and spirits."-www.raysandstarkbar.com/

They have a unique menu that is constantly changing so no no fear of boredom there. My favorite welcoming attraction about the restaurant is their outdoor patio and bar with tasteful well deserved drinks and comfortable seating areas for social groups.   We love to note perfect go to “date night” spots, and this is one of them.  The chic contemporary designs welcomes the intellectual couple and individual.

Chef Pascal Lorange along side with Michelin-star chefs from the South of France prepared a variety of tastes to choose from.  Any sheik Angelino would adore this Perfect Location, Melrose Place, West Hollywood, a long side fashion boutiques which you can also indulge in and close to the Los Angeles’s night life, this is the perfect place for dinner.  Atmosphere is warm, romantic, and inviting.  Unlike most places around this area that may be uncomfortable or intimidating, FIG AND OLIVE, has a welcoming staff and options that will highlight your night.  A MUST SEE!!!
