Could not find any posts on this Sunset Strip spot. Not bad. Maybe a good place to take out of towners for the feel of LA. Probably best to have reservations. Need to walk around the lobby, see the modern furniture, the video installation and the young woman lounging in a tank over the reception desk. The overall feel of the common area is that of a poor man's Mondrian without the attitude. Bar is comfy looking and extends out to the pool area which affords a view not unlike that at Fenix at the Argyle down the block. Don't know if you can get anything serious to eat in the bar tho. The restaurant has the look of a hip midcentury modern coffee shop (think Ship's). The menu is more upscale. Had a respectable steak and (good) frites. My good wife opted for sea bass that came with nicely done asparagus and a little rice. The steak had a cabernet reduction sauce and crisp onion rings on top. This, plus one piping hot mini-baguette plus bottled water, a tea and a coke came to $55 plus tip. Not a bad place to hike to after a film at the Sunset 5. Limited menu but a good alternative to Puck's Cafe. Service is not obtrusive.
