From the moment walking in WP24 the experience was no short of excellent. Stepping into the luxe dinning experience in The Ritz Carlton in DTLA you’ll notice the energy is contagious. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves and the experience amongst close friends. Immediately after entering I knew I’d be back as it is a perfect hot spot for a night out on the town or to bring a date.
Situated in the heart of Los Angeles, five minutes from the Staple Center (which is by far my favorite neighborhood in Los Angeles) you’re given superb views of all of Downtown which is always a conversation starter and candy for the eyes. As you know I’m a sucker for anything design and I fell hard for the interior during my visit to WP24. I’m obsessed with mixing dark elements in a well lit space and thats just what they’ve done with WP24. They kept it simple and clean while adding glamorous touches to the space and got it right with the details. With the large windows and the skyline its an amazing spot to watch the sunset while dinning and enjoying company.
The menu had an assortment of delicious Asian cuisine along with options to make items gluten free and or vegan which in LA is a must, just not for me! Their drink menu had an array of clean and well thought cocktails that went well with the dishes. We decided to go for pearfect asian, mostly because I really enjoy a good pun and because I love lime and ginger! For our appetizer we went the crystal chive dumplings which are literally to die for. They included alaskan king crab, shrimp, pork and Chinese mustard to top it all off. We went ahead and ordered another appetizer because we just couldn’t help ourselves and went for steamed bao buns that had slow cooked pork belly and sweet garlic glaze, these literally melted in our mouths and I had to hold back from ordering a second round to keep room for the main course.
When the main course arrived I had to ask my friends to wait before we dug in because I just had to take another food file (Yes, I’m that person.) The plating was so well curated and you know I’m a sucker for the details in just about everything. We went with the grilled sonoma lamb chop and broiled Japanese cod.
The grilled Sonma lamp chops was like something I’ve never had before. I’ve had lamb chop many times in my life and have never been so satisfied. Seasoned with cilantro mint vinaigrette, mizen, ginger and crispy garlic made my tastebuds go straight into bliss. For the broiled Japanese cod prepared with ginseng honey and black sesame vinaigrette and sided with tempura vegetables which was absolutely exquisite.
After finishing just about every bite we relaxed and enjoyed ourselves and the night sky right from our seats in WP24 . It was truly a sybaritic experience and I definitely see myself bringing new and old friends back to WP24 time and time again!
