It is here that I have decided to include recipes, restaurant reviews, and tasty drinks I come across. For my first posting, I will be reviewing the infamous Barton G.

Barton G – Los Angeles

A little background information, Barton G. Weiss is a world renown event planner extraordinaire. His first restaurant open in Miami, Florida, and his second in Los Aimagengeles, California.

The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. Weiss incorporates glass walls with mini flower holders featuring fresh orchids. There are gorgeous satin drapes used to enclose the couch like booths for a more private dining experience. Intricately carved moldings are used in a picture frame like fashion to outline the back booths in an alcove full of fluffy cushions and a bench seat style booth.

The room is breathtaking in its beauty. All in what appears to be a champagne and metallic color scheme bringing light, life and movement into the dimly lit space. Chandeliers provide most of the lighting in the room as well as some other decorative light fixtures.

The menu includes many interesting and tasty items but it is the way the items are served that really make Barton G.’s a must visit. I have included items from our meal in the following pictures.

My meal of choice, blackened cod comes to the table in a brown lunch bag that the waiter cut open with giant gardening shears. Served with potatoes and broccoli rab in a flower pot.
