Much like dating, fine dining is all about the experience. When it comes to placing the two together there’s nothing better than the company you keep beautifully complimenting a chef’s work of art. Place this between the walls of Public Kitchen & Bar in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel with head chef Ben Ford, and truly escape with your special someone.
Upon walking into the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel I became transfixed by the astounding Spanish-influenced architecture, giant brass chandeliers, handcrafted columns and dramatic arches. No matter the modern styles seen outside these doors once immersed into the Roosevelt lobby one cannot help but feel the history of the 1920’s surrounding them. It’s like walking the hallways of a history museum, except with beds, privacy, and plenty to eat and drink. It’s the ultimate historic playground.
Atop the grand staircase you will find the eclectic Old Hollywood style restaurant, Public Kitchen & Bar. Ask to recline on a mahogany tufted leather booth for heightened intimacy, and float away with comfort while ordering some of LA’s finest small bites, and entrees. Many dishes are designed for sharing; so don’t hesitate to encourage your date to reveal in a bit of experimentation.
