As a leading event planning firm in Los Angeles, R.T. Clown Inc. tries to keep on top of new and exciting places within our great city. From Manhattan Beach to Korea Town, and from Sherman Oaks to Downtown, Los Angeles is a truly amazing place, full of diversity and eclectic lifestyles. To help you zero in on some of Los Angeles’ best dining locations (both old and new), R.T. Clown Inc. has put together a list of Los Angeles restaurants that serve great food, provide amazing ambiance, and should be considered for your next event or corporate party.
Cassia – Santa Monica
Husband and wife, Kim and Bryant Ng have partnered to create one of Santa Monica’s hottest new restaurants. The feel of the restaurant is amazing: large and open without feeling like you’re sitting at a formal State dinner table. With a private dining area, outside patio seating, and a wine room, Cassia is a great place to host a party or even company event. The cuisine is a tip-of-the-hat to Bryant Ng’s upbringing, with flavors of Vietnam and French culinary influences.
Rose-Café Restaurant –Venice Beach
There is nothing more iconic that this classic Venice Beach restaurant! One of the things about the Rose is that it is one of the most flexible restaurants around. If you want breakfast, no problem; lunch and dinner, yep they can do that too. In addition, the restaurant is well known for its homemade pastries and outstanding wine selection. The Rose also fits the bill when it comes to a great event spot because of its sprawling space, indoor and outdoor dining space, with a great patio and complete beer garden.
Hatchet Hall – Culver City
This Culver City restaurant is really an ode to great Southern cooking – pure American cuisine that is made from local ingredients, often acquired through local farmers. This is a great place for events as it has an expansive floor plan, and a great old school bar, called the Old Man Bar, that is tucked behind the main dining room. Culver City is also a great city to enjoy an event.
A.O.C. – West Los Angeles
Just a couple of blocks east of Robertson Boulevard on West Third Street you will find the A.O.C. restaurant. This classic Los Angeles restaurant has been called an icon by food critic Johnathan Gold, and should be visited by every Angelino at least once a year. With one of the most pleasant patio spaces in town, and ample seating inside, the A.O.C. is a great place for corporate events or a small gathering of friends.
Broken Spanish – Downtown Los Angeles
This restaurant is located on Flower Street just steps away from Downtown LA Live, the Broken Spanish restaurant is a great creative take on Mexican-American cuisine that oozes Los Angeles culture and a great ambiance. Broken Spanish is the grown up restaurant this area desperately needed. Order the chicharron and some of the wonderful blue corn tortillas, and invite your office or social club to visit this Los Angeles gem.
