Inspired by the pan-Asian cooking prevalent for years in the sophisticated cuisine of Australia, the two-level E.P & L.P serves up everything from tasty Filipino-influenced ceviche napped in coconut milk to the distinctively Thai larb, which is essentially a salad of grilled duck showered with Thai herbs. The fusion-style menu here runs the gamut from Vietnamese to Chinese to Thai to Fijian. The food is tasty, or rather better than you expect it to be considering this is more of a supper club where the cuisine might normally play second fiddle to the various cocktail concoctions. The see-and-be-seen rooftop bar, the L.P. portion of the endeavor, is a wonderful perch from which to take in a panoramic view of sprawling Los Angeles and hobnob with patrons dressed to the nines. You can get an old-fashioned or a simple Manhattan with a vivid Luxardo cherry. But the bartenders here excel at drinks such as the rose-based California Love and the Bittersweet Symphony, which uses gin and house-made Pimm's. There are even alcoholic versions of the tea drinks loaded with chewy boba pearls. And it goes without saying that the view can't be beat. —Kayvan Gabbay
