This June long weekend, Los Angeles’ hottest restaurant and bar, E.P. & L.P, takeover the Dolphin Hotel for an afternoon into evening, full venue Aperitivo
Party of Snacks, Drinks and Music.
Making the trip over is E.P. & L.P. Head Chef Louis Tikaram and co-owner, renowned Australian Dj Grant Smilie. E.P. & L.P., opened in 2015, and
has dominated the L.A. bar and restaurant scene. With it’s well heeled and celebrity guest-list, the restaurant and rooftop lounge bar has become known
as a place to eat delicious food and good times.
Tikaram has built two custom menus for the occasion. His Wine Room Aperitivo menu of Snacks from $5-7 consists of dishes such as Blue swimmer crab congee,
Wagyu crackers, Hollywood Abalone and Kakoda Fijian style ceviche. The Dolphin is stripping the tables and chairs from the Dining Room for Tikaram’s
and Monty Koludrovic’s fuller Bar menu. The menu consisting of E.P. & L.P hits and some dishes sprinkled with Southern Californian influence that
Tikaram has picked up since moving to the US.
“This will be my first time back in an Aussie kitchen since leaving Australia to open E.P. & L.P. in 2014. I’m super excited to be teaming up with
the guys at the Dolphin, to share my experiences and influences from Southern California so far and also tell my story through the menu from as far
back as Mullumbimby. It’s going to be one hell of a Queen’s Birthday weekend.”
- Louis Tikaram
