If you’re looking for an unusual venue that offers both indoor and outdoor seating, Wilshire LA is the place. Its unique layout creates an aesthetic shift between its cosy library-like indoor and the large outdoor courtyard. The interior is furnished with brick walls and candles, creating a cosy antiquated appearance. Lit by strings of lights and warmed by many heat lamps, the outdoor patio seems like a “secret garden” to some patrons.
Wilshire’s menu consists of locally sourced organic ingredients, with emphasis on what’s available seasonally. Self-identified as “new urban cuisine”, they offer an American/Italian fusion, with dishes on menu such as maple leaf duck breast, steak tartare, and hamachi appetizers. Aiming to be a “neighborhood restaurant”, Wilshire is unpretentious yet offers a high quality of food, service, and ambiance.
Stating that no party is too big or small, Wilshire will customize its space for your needs – be it a holiday work party, a wedding or a family reunion. Staff will take care of tents, menus, music equipment, and basic event organization. Several spaces within Wilshire are available for rent, including The Office which seats 8 – enough for a private business dinner. If you have a slightly larger party The Suite can accommodate 12 guests for a sit-down meal and is equipped with a flat screen TV and its own powder room. The C-Garden overlooks the outdoor patio and has its own fireplace, and can seat 16. The Lower Patio seats 40 for dinner or 75 for a reception, and includes use of the patio bar. For an intimate indoor experience The Library accommodates 30 seated, or 50 for cocktails. Finally, the entire restaurant including all of the above is also available for rent for private events.
