Grandmaster Recorders is a restaurant, rooftop and bar that opened in 2021. Transforming and paying homage to the original recording studio that opened in 1971, you’ll want to visit Grandmaster restaurant Wednesday-Sunday for hip and delicious Italian-Australian dishes. The wide-ranging menu choices include fragrant, lobster-rich fish stew; catch of the day; pastas such as Ink Cavatelli with spanner crab, ginger, basil and lemon; or transparent sea prawn tortellini.  You’ll find Westholme Wagyu and well-curated cheese platters on the menu, too – as well as cocktail concoctions like those placed on their “Liquid Dolce” menu such as Sgroppino – frozen lemon, vodka, and prosecco whip.

Chef Evan Funke pays homage to the “culinary heritage of La Cucina Romana.” Dine Friday or Saturday as the restaurant isn’t open Sunday or Monday. The farmer’s market-fresh cuisine includes ricotta-filled squash blossoms, rigatoni all’amatriciana, and a variety of irresistible thin-crusted pizzas. Don’t miss the grilled whole Branzino, or the Negroni cocktails – all served in a stunning setting with comfortable deep salmon-colored banquettes.

As the great poet Omar Khayyam said, “A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou,” is pretty much perfection, and certainly the bread at Superba Food & Bread will fill the bill.  Open all 7 days, the beautifully appointed Hollywood outpost of the Superba family of fine dining spots, offers toast choices with toppings such as sunflower butter with Asian pear, golden raisins, black pepper or turmeric eggs and kale for brunch; at dinner, start with a selection of freshly baked breads like charred levain with butter and chives, porridge, and polenta levain, or poppy baguette. Of course, there’s more to the menu than bread alone – from hearth roasted chicken to King Island Salmon. Cocktails? Try a Casablanca -rum, lime, orange, and cherry liqueur. But yes, there’s wine and beer selections, too.

The Barish is located in the gloriously updated first floor of The Hollywood Roosevelt. (courtesy photo)

The location suggests you might just want to make a weekend out of your Valentine’s Celebration! A special Valentine’s Day menu is available Friday, February 11th – through Monday, February 14th from 5 to 9 p.m., and includes sea bream or dry-aged New York steak with salt-baked fries, as well as choices like rigatoni with goat cheese and squash in brown butter. Try a honey gelato with your sweetie for dessert.
