Interior

Carthay Circle Restaurant is known for its upscale, modern global cuisine. The restaurant is a replica of the former Carthay Circle Theatre of Hollywood’s Golden Age, where “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” first premiered in 1937. A nod to the classic film can be seen on the ceiling inside the restaurant.

This is a classic, well-balanced old fashioned. The orange bitters are pretty prominent with the bourbon.

The creamy aioli adds a lot of flavor, as do the chunks of chorizo. Although, the chorizo isn’t very spicy.

Our fish of the day was halibut. And it was tender and buttery in a well-seasoned vinaigrette that has a Mexican flare.
