Retro chic atmosphere at Simone

Retro chic atmosphere at Simone

The restaurant pays tribute to soul singer Nina Simone with a trendy state of mind.

In Los Angeles, all you have to do to travel back in time is come over to Simone. Located in Downtown's Art District, this restaurant pays tribute to singer Nina Simone. A former photography studio, the place is a work of art in and of itself. The subdued atmosphere, retro-industrial decoration and felt-like velvet bench seats will take you to a 1960s Los Angeles. At Duello, Simone's bar, you will have fun browsing the cocktail menu that reads like a book, with chapters and timelines tracing a history of the city until 2018, when the restaurant was created. After pre-dinner drinks, you should take a seat in the restaurant's main dining room. Jessica Largey's cooking hauls in perfectly crafted Mediterranean dishes. The kaki and pomegranate-enhanced burrata is well worth a try, as is the beef tartare with Thai red onions.
