Drinks with a View: Rockwell Opens in September


Rockwell, a multi-level restaurant, bar and outdoor lounge located behind Vermont Restaurant in Los Feliz, is nearly ready for its September launch. Rockwell integrates 6,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor spaces, with dining and lounge areas designed around a 30-foot coral tree. A staircase leads to the upper levels and panoramic views of Los Angeles.

Chef-owner Wayne Elias and Vermont chef Stephane Beaucamp have created a menu focused on seasonal and sustainable items, such as a savory braised short rib and a fried shallots flatbread pizza topped with smoked tomatoes and melted gruyere. Lighter fare includes 7 Pepper Calamari (topped with ginger, cucumber, jalapeno and scallions) and Rockwell Tacos, made with taro root shells, spicy tuna, jicama and avocado.

Specialty cocktails will include the Sazerac Vermont (Rittenhouse rye, Peychaud’s Bitters and a touch of absinthe) and the Anti-Rita, a new school margarita made with silver tequila, VeeV Açaí, acai-blueberry juice, lime and agave nectar. Craft beer fans will find Angel City Vitzen, Santa Cruz Ale Works IPA, and more, along with “Big Beers” like Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat.
