But that’s not to say you don’t appreciate the best of the best of other cultures when the time is right.
So as Bastille Day approaches, a certain notion comes to mind.
You could really go for some mussels...
Welcome to Rosé, an indoor-outdoor den of shellfish, wine cocktails and European DJing that feels like Saint-Tropez on La Cienega, scheduled to soft-open Tuesday.
Step inside and you’ll see what we mean: the whitewashed walls, copper accents and large patio with umbrella-covered tables make this the perfect place for your next dinner party involving any guests with surnames like Bruni, Béart and/or Binoche. Been ages since you caught up with Frank Binoche.
Start with a round of Electrolytes (vodka, watermelon, pineapple and, yes, rosé) at the porcelain bar inside, then lead your group out to your table on the patio for a feast of Goose Fat Roasted Potatoes and Moules Façons Rosé—it’s steamed mussels with, yes, more rosé. They have their own label here, made specially for them in Saint-Tropez.
At a certain point after sundown, your dinner party will get less dinner-y. The Euro music will become more prominent. And you’ll find yourself getting to know your expat neighbors—the place stays open until 2am.
After that, well, it’s still LA.
