Classic Dining

On Saturday night we ventured over to Los Feliz for dinner with our friends, Brenda and Jacques. We dined at The Dresden. This restaurant has been here since 1954! That's a long time for a Los Angeles restaurant. The food is fine at The Dresden, but it's the style of the place that knocks us out. The dining room is very mid-century. The booths and upholstered chairs are creamy white.

There are wooden poles reaching to the very high ceiling throughout the room, along with impressive modern chandeliers. It's all very elegant.

Naturally, we started with cocktails. The Dresden is known for it's swingin' drink menu. We all ordered classic dinners. The men had steak. Brenda and I had veal. I love that Brenda ordered the Iceberg Wedge Salad with tomato, bacon and bleu cheese dressing. At one time, this salad was the height of fine cuisine in L.A. continental style restaurants!

The bar at The Dresden is always packed, especially on a Saturday night. Marty and Elayne have been entertaining in the Lounge 5 nights a week since 1982. They are very talented and can play almost any request. If you really want to hear the duo, the best thing is to go early, book a table in the Lounge and stay for dinner. Marty and Elayne start around 9-ish.

The Dresden really is a time capsule of mid-century Los Angeles. It's always fun to visit!
