The Dresden Room
In The Dresden Room dark wood posts ascend two stories, wrapped around pristine white booths, in which tables are wheeled outward to help guests slide comfortably in, below spiraling gold Venetian chandeliers.
Lunch at The Dresden Room may be one of L.A.'s best kept secrets. These afternoons represent a pleasant respite from the bustle of Hollywood and Downtown and a quiet contrast to the hot and happening night scene. The litany of dishes under $10.00 include the Dresden Salad (tre Californian) made with avocado and bleu cheese.
At the bar in The Dresden Room, blue glasses are seen before patrons as they sip the house classic Blood and Sand- a space age Margarita of sorts and of course, the ubiquitous Martinis and Manhattans. Glasses of wine are popular, but the best choice is a bottle from the Dresden's 33-bin wine list-all very reasonable--with an appropriate blend of imported and domestic selections for every situation.
