Definitely do your research beforehand, but if inventive fine dining, avant-garde staff uniforms, and an amazing building + garden sound ideal to you, you should make a reservation at Vespertine.
Not just dinner. It is an experience! 20 courses of artfully crafted dishes, and the wine pairings were perfect. The atmosphere was dark, and serenely romantic. There is nothing like this place in LA.
A magical and artistic experience. Dine here and expect to be wowed by the surprising flavors, beautiful plating and cutlery, zen ambience and impeccable service.
