Old-school Hollywood meets 21st-century at this wood-paneled restaurant and bar in the lavish Sunset Tower Hotel. Occupying Bugsy Siegel’s old first-floor apartment, Tower Bar has niche seating, a warming fireplace, and panoramic views of the city. The menu selection is inspired by northern Italian and French bistro cuisine with such dishes as grilled salmon, chicken paillard, and braised short ribs. Less hungry diners can order small plates like lobster soft tacos, pigs in a blanket, and housemade hummus.
