Ray’s & Stark Bar


WHY The Los Angeles County Museum of Art finally gets the high-style bar and restaurant it deserves.

WHAT With bright red Saarinen chairs and a display of colorful teacups from the museum’s collection, the bright, airy restaurant complements the recently added Renzo Piano—designed pavilion opposite. On chef Kris Morningstar’s menu, flavorful fare like wild mushrooms, black vinegar and artichoke chips enliven basic proteins like hangar steak and arctic char. The best part? Each table gets a loaf of fresh-baked sourdough bread. Outside, creative cocktails are served at Stark’s Bar, along with adventurous bar bites—think head cheese and beef tendon alongside flatbreads with tasty toppings.

WHO Monied museum docents and donors, camera-toting tourists.
