This whimsical restaurant will surprise and delight every guest, with Lobster Pop Tarts served in a giant blue toaster, Blooming Sea Bass with flowering potatoes and popcorn shrimp in a popcorn machine.

Guests are clearly delighted, and conversation springs from table to table.

“Everything at the restaurant is calculated to inspire, tickling one’s intellect and appealing to all the senses,” says Barton G. Weiss. “We are bringing out the spirited side of fine dining — color, sound, texture, aroma and the stimulation of feeling as if transported far from anywhere you have ever been — to create an awe-inspiring style of eating and drinking unlike any other. It’s something that Los Angeles has yet to see.”

Completing the dining experience are dessert masterpieces by Corporate Executive Chef Luis Vasquez. Sweet creations range from Marshmallow Pizza, piped meringue “crust,” strawberry jelly sauce, agar onion rings and white chocolate “cheese” to Sweet Garden Pots, with potted cupcakes filled with crumbled brownie “soil” and green velvet cake “moss” topped with seasonal fruit.

The chocolate indulgence comes with a shovel and what appears to be a chocolate treasure chest with Warm Valrhona Chocolate Brownie, Chocolate Ganache and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. The 24-carat gold dust spoons can be eaten, and there are gold coins inside as well.

High-octane liquid nitrogen cocktails add to the exuberant meal, with selections such as the “Sin-Sation,” made with vanilla vodka and rose petal nectar, topped with Champagne and served with a housemade nitrogen popsicle. And “Diamonds are Forever” features citrus vodka, triple sec and lemonade alongside a citrus vodka popsicle and sugar stick.
