While Cliff's Edge in Silver Lake is renowned for the excellent food served on its gorgeous terraced patio, the interior, now known as The Bar at Cliff's, is destination worthy in its own right. The striking room features a high ceiling, skylights, Moroccan chandeliers, and a frequently-updated, well-curated cocktail menu. The new winter cocktails include The Cliff's Manhattan and The Bitter Pill. The former, an update on the classic, is enlivened with the addition of black walnut bitters and Ramazzotti to the rye whiskey, while the latter is an enticing concoction of Zaya rum, Fernet Branca, lime juice, brown-sugar syrup, and egg whites. Nightly from 6pm they feature a beer special and a cocktail special from a rotating list of $3 beers and $7 specialty cocktails. It's an elegant but easy place to stop in for a drink or two, with the option of ordering superior bar bites, such as French fries with gorgonzola sauce, a charcuterie plate, or a grilled shrimp brochette.

Cliff's Edge says…

Dana Hollister and Keith Greco, both successful designers in their own rights, came together as a team, and forged a vision that transformed a formerly dingy space into Cliff's Edge Restaurant, a romantic, magical dining destination. Pierre Casanova, who had welcomed guests and run the front of house at Cafe Des Artistes, Les Deux Cafe, and Little Door, provides the essential element of a manager  who knows his customers intimately, and how to welcome them 'comme famille.' Hollister, Greco, and Casanova have transformed the interior dining room, and The Bar at Cliff's is poised to become a destination for lovers of classic curated cocktails. Dave Whitton has created a menu of familiar classics, each created with a twist that stays true to the spirit of the cocktail, while breathing new life into it.
