The newest entry to dining in the 818 is Raphael in Studio City which opened its doors Tuesday evening, October 13.  Owner Alon Raphael says his restaurant offers a new fine dining experience, offering world cuisine with seasonal ingredients and an extensive wine menu, including 50 choices of wine by the glass. The menu details the specific country of origin next to each dish.  Some are even classified by region, such as Southern and Northern France. Each dish has a unique twist dedicated to the influential country, using specialty ingredients.


No stranger to the restaurant industry or Studio City, Raphael’s family owned the Bel Air Bar and Grill, and he attended Carpenter Elementary and Walter Reed Middle School. Helming the kitchen at the 60-seat restaurant is chef Stephen Burkalis who worked at the Water Grill downtown. Prices range from $13-$19 for lunch and $18-$24 for dinner (with two entrees at $32 and $35).  Raphael is located at  11616 Ventura Blvd. Studio City, CA 91604 (818) 505-3337. www.raphaelonventura.com
