71Above is attempting to be a landmark restaurant for Los Angeles, and the place's design — even aside from that view — is sleek opulence. In the kitchen is Vartan Abgaryan, who came to 71Above from a stint at Cliff's Edge in Silver Lake, where he raised the quality of dining considerably. At 71Above, Abgaryan's penchant for high-end drama on the plate is much more at home. Read our full review.
