One of the city's most celebrated restaurants, Rouge is located in a historic 1891 mansion in Inglewood. It's to hard to get a table, but once inside, enjoy the inspired, sustainable food and exceptional fit-for-a-king service.The menu evolves weekly but you'll find dishes like duck and pistachio terrine, beef bolognaise with hand-cut noodles or rockfish with curry coconut broth.
A pairing menu ($115) is available at dinner. Tables are found in what was once the living rooms downstairs, along with the bedrooms upstairs. It's all white tablecloths and formal, making the walls cluttered with a hodgepodge of art seem out of place. Outside is a beautiful garden where many of its greens and herbs are grown.
