E.P. and L.P.


  • Rooftop bar, 5 p.m.-2 a.m. daily; dining room, 6-10:30 p.m. daily
Just as the best music producers have a knack for meshing seemingly disparate rhythms and tempos, so do the best chefs have a skill for commingling diverse flavors and textures — knowing exactly what goes together well and what to pump up, dilute or mute. At E.P. & L.P., the two-level restaurant and bar on La Cienega that opened in May, the analogy is especially fitting. The name references album lengths. E.P. — which includes the indoor restaurant area — stands for Extended Play, while L.P. —the moniker for the rooftop lounge — stands for Long Play. “We have a few subtle nods to music through the restaurant,” says owner/chef Louis Tikaram. “ [We were] inspired by co-founder Grant Smillie’s background as a celebrated DJ alongside one of our partners in the project, Axwell (of Swedish House Mafia fame). Our private rooftop bar, Frankie's, also pays tribute to legendary DJ, Frankie Knuckles.”
