Since 1970, when the noted keyboardist Don Randi opened this Studio City bar and restaurant, the Baked Potato has been one of Los Angeles' leading jazz clubs. Unlike many jazz venues, the Potato specializes in jazz fusion and has hosted such avant-garde rockers and musicians' musicians as Larry Carlton, Danny Carey, Kevin Eubanks, Andy Summers and Allan Holdsworth. With its low ceiling and wood-paneled walls, which are covered with photos and flyers, the club feels more like a rumpus room or a den than some of the fussier, more-upscale joints in town. Befitting the restaurant's name, the menu features baked-potato dishes, including such unusual variations as maple ham & cheese, sauteed spinach, sauerkraut and teriyaki chicken. Cover varies. All ages.
