Crossroads Kitchen gave Los Angeles what New York City already had and its residents loved – a fine-dining restaurant that was entirely plant based. And, if offered more by the way of a celebrity chef who would run the kitchen. At Crossroads, Tal Ronnen creates upscale, hearty, delicious, and sumptuous fare to be dined on, hopefully, as a social affair. Small bites are perfect for sharing and pairing with larger entrees, each of which offers a unique take on vegan cuisine.
Mediterranean-Inspired Tapas and Entrees as Well as Organic Cocktails
Crossroads Kitchen sits on Melrose Boulevard, in a hip area of West Hollywood that features high-end furniture boutiques and clothing stores. It’s a place where local urbanites and visitors can gather over appetizers like Cream of Fava Bean and English Pea Soup drizzled with almond Greek Yogurt, or house-made flatbread with pistachio-kalamata tapenade and spicy roasted cauliflower. Crossroads is a sophisticated space that offers a large bar stocked with organic cocktails and spirits. Much of the food is inspired by the Mediterranean, but there are some local specialties as well.
Before or after a meal at Crossroads Kitchen, it can be fun to do some shopping (or window shopping) on Rodeo Drive in nearby Beverly Hills.
