Food & Drink

Rolling Stone Los Angeles

Jann Wenner's music mag attempts to get into one of the only businesses where it's even harder to make a profit with RS/LA, which features two levels: a 140 seat walnut floored dining room upstairs with "'50s-style" leather chairs, tufted red leather banquettes, Brit style lampposts, and an outdoor patio; plus a lounge-esque downstairs with an elevated DJ booth, private booths, and an area for bottle service. Drinks come from the dude behind the cocktail menu at Westside Tavern, while vittles are an upscale "melting pot of culture", including snacks like warm bleu cheese popovers with caramelized shallot butter & pretzel knots with beer cheese fondue, plus mains like a Pinot-braised short rib osso bucco with whipped potatoes that hardly ever get to see their buds.
