Grilled cheese and salads meet sushi-inspired fare on the new dinner menu at Highland Park’s ETA Cocktail Bar. Behind the design is executive chef Ramses Walker of Trejo’s Restaurant Group, Hotel Figueroa and L’Ermitage. He’s come up with dishes aimed at complementing the location’s highly acclaimed beverage program.

With drinks and now dinner to enjoy, an obvious pairing is the selection of high end cheese and charcuterie boards; other items on the menu include faro salad, ahi sashimi, The EchoPlex grilled cheese with roasted fig, brie and bleu on brioche.

Dinner at ETA is now being served nightly starting at 6:00 pm and alongside live jazz every Sunday through Tuesday.
