The atmostphere was good but nothing great. The foie gras just as expected. Honestly, I could have cook it myself at home. The black cod was delish though.

By far, this is the most creative and artistic restaurant in LA. Even if you don't like seafood, the originality and uniqueness is not to be missed. Pricey, but you get what you pay for. Just suck it up and do it.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
