Sustainable? No. Organic? Probably not. Multicultural? Only when strictly necessary. Patina's exquisite dining room in Disney Hall is the most important restaurant space in California, and Tony Esnault is a master of modern global cuisine, finely crafted, vegetable-intensive compositions of Berkshire pork, yellowfin or Santa Barbara spot prawns geared to the sophisticated palate of the international traveler, beautiful to look at, and as carefully branded as a Lexus. The restaurant is known for the offhand complexity of its presentations, exotic spices and seasonal emulsions often sparked by fragrant herbs or bursts of acidity, food that is often as compelling to think about as it is to eat.
