Asian Fusion Weddings » East marries West for Double Happiness

Great restaurants to host wedding receptions in the Los Angeles and Southern California area

There are literally thousands of places that you can host a fabulous Chinese wedding, Western wedding and/or an Asian Fusion Wedding in Toronto, New York, Vancouver or southern California wedding ceremony and wedding reception.  This week, we have chosen to focus on restaurant settings that can be used as potential wedding venues.  By definition, we have classified a restaurant as a place where people pay to sit and eat meals that are cooked and served on the premises on a daily basis.

We will provide some examples of venue ideas in each respective geographical locations; and the third stop this week is Los Angeles and Southern California area.  These restaurants are NOT listed in any particular order.  Please feel free to comment below about your Toronto, New York, Vancouver and southern California wedding reception venue search and how you ended up choosing the your picture perfect place.

Cicada Restaurant – A 1928 art deco landmark at the historic Lalique palace, Cicada is located in the Art Deco Oviatt building of Los Angeles’ downtown core.  Originally built as a top-of-the-line haberdashery, it retains much of the original design that the French designers and artisans of the time created.  A soaring gold leafed ceiling with lalique lighting, a dramatic staircase and extraordinary northern Italian cuisine.  The opulent dining and showroom, boasts giant old-growth oak columns that feature pairs of angels holding bells and gold-leaf ceilings, compliment the fine vintage entertainment and patrons dressed in their elegant evening attire.

The Edison – is located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles; in the old boiler room of the historic Higgins Building. The Edison celebrates an era of invention and imagination- the blending of science, art, and industry.  Los Angeles’ first private power plant has been transformed into a hip bar characterized by dark and eccentric features.  Enjoy Artisanal Cocktails and a select menu of Signature Food in an Industrial Cathedral crafted from the architectural artifacts. This isn’t your typical wedding venue, so please indulge us as we share a few extra photographs of this rare gem!!  We can envision a steam punk wedding, a Goth wedding, a 1920’s themed wedding or even an Anime wedding in this spectacular spare.

Craft Restaurant – is located in Century City, Los Angeles’ west side.  New York, chef Tom Colicchio brought Craft’s pioneering approach to dining to Los Angeles in 2007.  He inspired to mimic the experience of dining in someone’s home, pristine seasonal ingredients are simply prepared and served family-style to the center of the table, allowing guests to build their own plates.  The menu features an array of small dishes, divided into categories including oysters, snacks, flat breads, salads, share plates and cheese.  Perennial favorites include roasted quail, braised beef short ribs, and the bounty of farmer’s market sides in every season.  Menu items range from light fare such as wild arugula with pine nuts and Parmesan or calamari with spinach, chorizo and golden raisins, to a hearty plate of veal meatballs or flat bread with provolone, Italian sausage and pea tendrils.  Chic and contemporary cabañas are set on the Craftbar patio to provide a private atmosphere and al fresco dining.
