    Very creative dishes surrounding a central theme, with condiments from London and extreme care and planning (one dish took three days to prepare).
    Review for Dine in LA presents a Bridgerton themed dinner on Oct 2021.

    Tony and his team created an amazing fine dining experience that not only delivered fantastic flavors but also huge portions! Every dish is prepared with care and it really shows. I also loved the venue in the arts district of LA. I will be coming to more of these events in the future.

    Had a wonderful evening dining with some people we had never met before, but with whom we shared a table. The food and drinks were delicious and I loved the backstory on each plate.
