Hailed by Esquire as “One of the best new restaurants" the year it opened, and by the Los Angeles Times as “a feast for the senses,” Ray's and Stark Bar offers a Mediterranean-inspired menu with dishes from the restaurant’s wood-burning oven and grill, and an emphasis on farm-to-table, seasonal fare. To drink: seasonal cocktails, a California-centric wine list, and artisan beers and spirits.
