Brought to LA from Paris by notable French restaurateur Guillaume Guedj, the tucked away spot buzzes with energy as a trendy crowd dines from the thoughtful menu of contemporary French cuisine. Upscale street food and handcrafted cocktails come together to deliver a dining experience you won’t forget. The sleek, modern interior is complemented by an intimate garden patio, where a DJ adds a danceworthy soundtrack to your night. Book a reservation at Mr. T if you want to be in on the secret. 🤫

Mr. T Los Angeles Details:
Every item on the menu will blow you away thanks to the creativity of Executive Chef Alisa Vannah. Some highlights are the Lumpia and Mr. T Mac N Cheese, toasted tableside. Also, the “Burgundy” Prawns are an absolute essential, made with garlic butter and served over a puff pastry.
With every drink named after a ’90s hip hop song, you know they’re gonna be good. The “C.R.E.A.M.” is a delicious cognac and sparkling wine choice, while the “Skys the Limit” is a solid option for tequila and mezcal lovers. The “How Do You Want It” is also flavorful and fruity made with bourbon, French aperitif, peach, almond and citrus.
One of the best parts of your experience will be the music. The “T” in Mr. T stands for Tuesday, and it’s definitely their best night. They’re committed to bringing street style to the space, with DJ MOS or William Lifestyles playing ’80s and ’90s hip hop and dance classics weekly. The busy weekday brings people ready to enjoy their night (some might even be compelled to dance after a few drinks). You can also come in for Jazz Night one Thursday each month where a jazz band brings a live music soundtrack to your night.
The second you walk through the door, you’ll notice that the vibes are truly immaculate. The interior is modern but not cold, and trendy but not pretentious. Red neon “Mr. T” signs can be found throughout the space alongside drapes, leather furnishings, and an impressive extended bartop. Outside, you can embrace the beautiful Los Angeles weather underneath twinkling lights and surrounded by greenery. The sultry lounge space is also ideal for catching up with drinks after a memorable dinner.
