Dine 900 feet above the world in DTLA.
When the glass slide at the OUE Skyspace observation deck closed down, many Angelenos regretted not paying the fee to enjoy the unmatched views alongside tourists. While we’ll still miss the events put on at this exquisite venue, we finally have a new reason to head up to the 69th floor of the US Bank Tower building: Vista Patio. The new al fresco restaurant by 71Above soars 900 feet above the DTLA, making it the highest outdoor dining room in the world.
You’ll find a delectable menu of 10 Mezze plates for $54 per person which can be paired with high-quality wines, beers or craft cocktails. Dishes include laidback Mediterannean fare like olives, hummus, Muhammara, Lebni, Moutabel with a number of supplemental items like Yellowfin Crudo. For dessert, there’s the Ashta—a pudding with crushed pistachio, honey and dried strawberries. These casual but moreish meals have been lovingly created by the 71Above restaurant chef Javier Lopez.
Of course, whatever you order comes with breathtaking views of the city from two balconies. You can take in take in major landmarks like the Dodger Stadium, Century City, SoFi Stadium and Hollywood sign while sipping a glass of red and feasting on the beautiful spread of dips and salads.
The building was acquired by New York-based Silverstein Properties during the pandemic and has been searching for appropriate tenants since. With the 71Above restaurant team eagerly waiting for restrictions to loosen to reopen, it seems only fitting that the two teams would come together to bring an incredible dining experience and a reason to keep returning to the 69th floor. Plus, it will also put a number of furloughed staff back at work.
Vista Patio opens on April 6 and opens from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Sunday through Thursday with Friday and Saturday nights extended to 11 p.m.
Reservations can be made online here.
