At Noreetuh, Hawaiian food — with roots in Japanese, Korean, and Filipino cuisines — is reimagined through an American lens. The restaurant’s modern, earthy vibe complements its brightly flavored menu. Wash any of the many shareable plates and late night options down with a Hawaiian beer, sake or wine flight.

Redbird, located inside the former rectory of the Vibiana — LA’s historic downtown cathedral — showcases Chef Neal Fraser’s creative New American cuisine. Inventive cocktails and small plates can be customized into a tasting menu or a more traditional three-course meal. An outdoor courtyard features a retractable roof, while a relaxed lounge space, wine cellar and near 360-degree marble bar fill the chic interior.
