The Sophisticated Lumière Brasserie

 

Lumière, our modern American brasserie dabbles, mixes, and samples daringly in French tradition. Open for all-day service, Lumière is driven by the pulse of the season, using fresh, seasonal ingredients in refined dishes that combine French technique with California style, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.

The Lumière kitchen aims to be as local as possible sourcing food from nearby farms and producing on-site ingredients and herbs. Lumière offers uniquely warm and chic identities within – the brasserie for a longer stay, the patisserie for daily Parisian provisions, the bar for playful and whimsical cocktails and specialty wines. Lumière’s team offers customizable events with a number of private dining spaces, sure to woo 12 to 120 guests at a time.

Lumière offers a taste of a traditional French fare, with distinctive SoCal flair, and touch of whimsy. The restaurant blends the best of the old world and new world. French antiques and authentic décor pepper the space, along with elaborate tilework, rich leather walls, plush banquettes, brass accents and a gorgeous zinc bar, all warmly lit by century-old chandeliers.

With no detail overlooked, guests can dine in the outdoor courtyard; sure to transport you to a hidden Parisian courtyard, outfitted with magnolia trees, jasmine and lavender plants. Our Zut Alors’ seafood towers and magnums of champagne will be sure to elevate your dining experience, with intimate, private dining spaces available for special moments and events.
