LA’s hottest chef’s table experience comes in the form of Curtis Stone’s intimate 25-seat ingredient-driven concept, tucked away on a quiet Beverly Hills street as inviting as Stone’s ever-rotating menu. Casual and fine dining collide in each facet of Stone’s cozy space, juxtaposed by rustic elements opposite modern accents in both décor and presentation, the entrance marked by little more than a simple “M” emblem on the door flanked by neatly arranged pitchers and stemware on shelves in the window. With the turn of each month, Stone introduces a new single ingredient inspiring a menu of nine tasting courses, intricately incorporated into each phase of the experience from amuse-bouche to petit four -- a recurring theme alongside Maude’s dedication to market integrity. Worth the hype, if we do say so ourselves. Look forward to pistachio, radish, garlic, cherry, zucchini, and plum coming up on the calendar; contact your Attaché for reservations and details.
