Mélisse does not have a cancellation policy; but out of courtesy, please let the Forbes Trave Guide Five-Star California restaurant know if you cannot make your reservation. However, cancelling will mean losing out on the opportunity to try chef and owner Josiah Citrin’s signature lobster Bolognese with fresh cappelini, black truffles and basil or a sample from Mélisse’s exquisite caviar menu. Wine lovers will not be disappointed here — Mélisse comes complete with an extremely knowledgeable sommelier and a cellar that’s stocked with more than 1,000 selections. For repeat diners, the seasonal menu will always have something new to offer. Citrin is a daily presence in Mélisse’s kitchen, and his seasonal menu is inspired by the freshest available ingredients. He frequents the weekly farmers’ market in Santa Monica to personally hand-select the produce.
