The Bel Air Bar and Grill has re-opened for lunch and dinner service after an 18-month renovation.
Susan Disney Lord directed the renovation along with Killefer Flammang Architects and interior design team Ralph Gentile Architects. The LEED-certified restaurant's new digs include a revamped interior and a brand new second-level private dining room.
Diners enter the restaurant lobby through a two-story red bougainvillea glass-box atrium, designed by artist Amanda Weil of Weil Studio, before proceeding into the ground floor restaurant or up a clear glass stairway to the second level that features views of the Getty Center. The Bel Air Bar and Grill boasts a new lounge, a full bar and will be displaying rotating artwork by students of the California Institute of Arts.
Truffled mac 'n' cheese, steamed mussels and pan-seared jumbo sea scallops are some of the items offered on the restaurant's “refreshed menu.”
The Bel-Air Bar and Grill is open for lunch, Monday through Friday, and dinner seven night a week.
