Review last reviewed on 08-Nov-2011

Los Angeles' only two Michelin-starred restaurant, Providence appetizers start at a weighty $21 and entrees at $43. But the drinks aren't nearly that expensive (at $15), so turn right when you go in the door and head straight to the small, orchid-decorated bar.

Here, Zahra Bates, a talented mixologist who honed her cocktail skills working in the Purple bar at the Sanderson Hotel in London, recreates forgotten classic cocktails from previous golden ages as well as five of her own cocktails using esoteric ingredients. You might think some of the combinations are a bit 'out there' but spend a few minutes with the passionate Zahra and she will convince you why her Dorian gray should contain both Aperol and Campari and how the Bamboo Gen successfully mixes genever, tokaji, manzanilla sherry and shiso bitters.
