Wine enthusiasts are wild about this West LA “wine restaurant” combining appealing Mediterranean dishes with a muscular cellar. Located atop the Wine House, the largest wine emporium in Los Angeles, Upstairs 2 makes coupling top wines with good food its nightly focus. Chef Todd Barrie, formerly of Joe’s in Venice, CA, has designed a Mediterranean small-plate menu combining seasonal ingredients and seafood in tasty fashion. The sommelier is the superstar on hand, though. Each of Upstairs 2’s 45 well-chosen labels is available by the carafe, half-bottle, glass, or taste.
