Hollywood & Melrose

The culinary elite haven’t been as enamored with SBE’s restaurants as the hordes of Hollywood trend seekers. But the entertainment company’s newest supper club, Foxtail, may change that. The former Lobby Lounge space has received a stunning art deco remodel—marble mosaic floors and colorful stained glass. The kitchen is run by Top Chef contestant Antonia Lofaso, who puts out a tidy menu of French bistro classics. The beefy onion soup gratiné shows refreshing restraint with salt. Sweet, rosy moules are the size of some iPods. A black truffle-crusted Angus fillet comes with a fried egg and, of course, frites. Wash it all down with an Uva Bella cocktail made with fresh pressed green grapes, gin, elderflower, and orange bitters. » 9077 Santa Monica Blvd. (310-859-8369 or D Mon.-Sat. Full bar.
