Located in the beautiful and deco Hotel Shangri-LA, The Dining Room is an enjoyable culinary nook nestled right off of the entrance.
Although it was virtually empty*, our French-imported waiter, Bello, was the sweetest and the food was even sweeter.
The cheese flight starter was heaven (obviously), accented by marcona almonds and honey comb. My Sea Bass was fantastic. Although I opted for the small portion..shocking, I know…paired with the cheese and a glass of Pinot, it was the perfect meal to savor and enjoy.
With a crispy crust on the bass nestled on top of tender beluga lentils and swiss chard, it truly was a delight. Rumor has it the Chicken (Cornish game hen) and Dumplings (gnocchi-ish bits), was delicious and I can say the Portobello frites were a treat.
Take the awesome elevator up to the rooftop for a fantastic and romantic view of the Santa Monica Pier and expansive ocean.
*we later learned the party was actually raging upstairs on their roof-top bar…
