Looking for a quiet spot in the Gaslamp to celebrate? Believe it or not, one of the best bets is the loudest, most packed restaurant in the Quarter — Searsucker. Brian Malarkey's constantly crowded eatery is now offering a private upstairs dining space.
The secluded spot features an extension of the design employed in the main dining room by L.A.'s renowned Thomas Schoos. The room is located on the second story, atop the kitchen. In order to get there, guests will head through two kitchens (Malarkey's open exhibition kitchen in the dining room and the prep and pantry areas in the back) to an elevator that will beam them up from Gaslamp ground zero to a much different Searsucker dining experience.
The space, which can hold up to 44 people and includes a fully-stocked wine cabinet, launched this weekend.
