It is probably better to book a table and go directly to it as you will immediately see upon entering the first floor that the scale of the bar for a restaurant of this size is quite small. The clientèle are forced to compete for space with the wait staff, who take up valuable real estate while queuing for drinks at the service bar.
A few months after SBE’s ventures Katsuya and S Bar opened to positive receptions, the restaurant group has jumped into opening a supper club type establishment. A bistro, a dance floor, a bar, a lounge and an outdoor patio are all arranged on two floors and located next to the renowned Dan Tana’s restaurant on Santa Monica Boulevard.
The chef is Antonia Lofaso, whose prior experience includes Spago and The Abbey by SBE. Some dishes on the menu reek of pseudo-bistro cooking, although others are spot on and left in their original and uncomplicated state the way they were intended.
The décor features splashes of copper, silver and brass mixed with hues of emerald green and pink and
is quite appealing.
