ABOUT OTIUM - LOS ANGELES

The restaurant’s name, Otium, has its roots in Latin, a word that is meant to emphasize a place where time can be spent on leisurely social activities. Adjacent to one of Los Angeles’ most important cultural corridors — Grand Avenue — and next to its newest, most vibrant addition, the contemporary art museum, The Broad, Otium strips away the rigid formalities of dining while focusing on the quality of food, warm service, and relaxed casual ambience, paralleling the true essence of its name. The restaurant draws inspiration from the 100-year-old olive trees planted in The Broad’s adjacent Plaza by utilizing rustic cooking with wood fire and sustainable ingredients grown in the garden of the restaurant’s mezzanine.

ABOUT HOW WINELA DINNERS WORK

Wine Policy
We promise to open 1-bottle per paid guest (up to 16 bottles).  Smaller dinner events will feature fewer bottles of wine but with LARGER pours per guest (14 guests / 14 bottles) …. as more guests come on board - the pour sizes decrease in total size but the number of bottles and number of pours increase. You will always get poured the same amount of total wine in ounces at one of our events. In the event of weaker than anticipated sales, we will decrease the number of bottles to allow the dinner to continue but increase the pour sizes in the bottles we open so the same amount of wine is provided regardless of event size.  The wines we decide to open and not open will be a justifiable mixture of wines but typically - we do open the stars of the show regardless and always promise a great value. 

Food Policy
With proper notice, we will work to make your food needs and requests available (within reason). Vegan, Vegetarian, other - just give us as much notice as possible.  Some restaurants have shared plates, we always work to make sure the food amounts are abundant and work to fix anything we can… you are our priority.

Other Policies - such as cancellation and other, are published in the ticketing website and reviewable before purchase is accepted. Please take time to understand our policies before purchasing a ticket.
