Patina is located in downtown Los Angeles at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The Four-Star restaurant offers contemporary French cuisine that focuses on seasonal ingredients conceptualized by master chef Joachim Splichal. Farm-fresh tasting menus, gourmet cheeses, caviar service and an award-winning wine list are just the beginning here. At Patina you can indulge in duck foie gras with black mission figs, decadent butter poached Maine lobster and artistic displays of fresh, seasonal vegetables. Executive chef Tony Esnault plucks organically grown herbs and edible flowers � like rosemary, fennel, lemon balm and Okinawa spinach � straight from the restaurant’s Blue Ribbon Garden and incorporates them into his dishes. The clean lines and earth tones in the main dining area give Patina a refined yet comfortable ambience, and guests also have the option of dining al fresco on the gorgeous outdoor patio. For dinner with a view, we recommend requesting the Chef’s Table. This secluded spot features a large glass window that faces the kitchen � it’s a prime spot to view all of the action.
