Description

LA Weekly's Description

The restaurant itself, run by Joachim Splichal's group, follows the lead of Splichal's Patina, Lincoln, by the Metropolitan Opera, and the Modern, in the Museum of Modern Art, in inserting major restaurants into major cultural spaces. And chef Kris Morningstar, whom we have seen here at Meson G, Blue Velvet and District, has designed one of the most seasonal, farm-based menus in town. In midspring, there is ramp risotto, whole roasted fava pods with olive oil, grilled puntarelle with anchovies, and English peas with gnocchi, just to name a few things whose seasons can be measured in days. The wild striped bass comes with Jerusalem artichokes, green garlic and chanterelles, vegetables whose seasons coincide briefly; the roast squab is stuffed beneath the skin with the last of the year's salsify and the first of the English peas. Lamb sweetbreads with artichokes? Why not - Roman spring. Pork belly? Of course, with yellow beets and arugula. Although the menu is vegetable-intensive, it is far, far from butter-free, but Ray's, named in honor of the late film producer Ray Stark, may be the restaurant that this plaza deserves.

    With Kris Morningstar's ambitious tinkering in the kitchen and a view of the Resnick Pavilion, the new Patina Group project at LACMA is a feast for the senses.

    Sit at the bar. Ask Mr Dozois to make you something spectacular. OH, and DEMAND LOTS OF BIG ICE!
