Though the establishment was once a spot of classic fine dining, made major tweaks have been made for the Southern California diner.
The focus of the fare has shifted to small, shareable plates and fusion cocktails.
The vibe itself inside the eatery is also different, as it’s now more sociable as a result of the changes made.
