The historic Belasco Theater Complex debuted its new dining concept with the grand opening of Les Coulisses, a modern take on classic French cuisine in a Hollywood Regency setting. Les Coulisses, meaning “backstage” in French, replaced the former Vintage 10 Fifty Wine Bar located directly off the main lobby of the Belasco Theatre located in Downtown Los Angeles. The French cuisine is inspired by the coastal regions around the Mediterranean Sea and includes a menu crafted by Executive Chef Frances Li.
The remodeled space from Marc Sittenfield of The Belasco Theater Hospitality Group and TINI Vintage Interior Design includes overstuffed sectionals covered in plush fabric, remixed with antiques and over the top Hollywood Regency style reminisce of the area’s golden age. The first-floor parlor room features an eclectic mix of styles, with one overarching, luxurious theme. The two-story 3,500 square foot space can accommodate 150 guests with cozy banquettes that line the upstairs mezzanine, which can be booked for private parties.
Les Coulisses caters to a range of unique culinary experiences. The menu is produce-driven and offers a lighter fare suited for the progressive lifestyle of today. Guests will enjoy a variety of fresh craft cocktails and tasting dishes that are both seasonal and locally sourced.
