Patina Restaurant Takes Its Black Truffles Bicoastal

Patina restaurant in downtown Los Angeles is kicking off the New Year with three black truffle dinners on January 10, 11, and 12 for up to 240 guests per night. Patina will offer three-, five-, and seven-course menus ($95, $135, and $175, respectively) with optional wine pairings ($35, $60, and $80).
