“Crossroads offers diners Mediterranean-themed small dishes, salads, farm-to-glass cocktails, and desserts in a fine-dining dinner style that encourages exploration. With its stylish atmosphere and refreshing sensibility, Crossroads isn’t just a leap forward in refined plant-based cuisine — it’s one of the most innovative culinary destinations in Los Angeles. It’s a decadent and indulgent dining experience approached in a conscious and cohesive manner.
Designed by Los Angeles-based interiors firm Studio Collective, Crossroads combines the elegance of fine dining with the playfulness of a beloved neighborhood spot. The restaurant features a central dining room that is a visual feast of wood crown molding and wing-backed chairs, lit by handcrafted chandeliers. The stylish 11-seat bar is situated adjacent to the Wine Room, which opens to the artisanal cheese shop. The Wine Room, which is available for private functions, lends itself well to exclusive wine, dinner, and tasting events. Its notable features include a retractable roof for open-air dining and a herringbone-patterned wine wall. On the opposing side of the space a Private Dining Room for Ten features an antique glass wall and original Toulouse-Lautrec print. The overall effect is that of a neighborhood gathering place infused with understated luxury.
