A.O.C. Wine Bar


Any friend of mine
knows that I'm a big fan of wine.

So whenever I'm on the Westside (near Cedars-Sinai and the Beverly Center), I try to stop by the lovely restaurant that is A.O.C.  The great thing about A.O.C. is that it offers a wide variety of delicious wine with delectable food in an atmosphere that is both romantic and refreshing.  And the new/not-so-new location is absolutely gorgeous.  I may be a bit impartial though, because I love the Lucques Restaurant Group (i.e., Lucques, Tavern, and The Larder Baking Co.), brought to us by the James Beard award winner, Chef Suzanne Goin and James Beard nominated restauranteur, Caroline Styne -- two fabulous women whom LA is blessed to have.

Main entrance.

Steps to the 2nd level dining area.

The restaurant's second floor has a charming, more intimate where you dine surrounded by bottles and bottles of wine.




AOC is a great brunch, happy hour, and/or a romantic dinner option for folks who enjoy a delicious meal in a beautifully-decorated and comfortable setting.  Family-style, shared plate dining is highly encouraged.  Thank you, Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne for your continued devotion of ensuring that Angelenos are well-fed!
