Behind a nameless door on a corner of Sunset Boulevard, you’ll find the Jungle Book. After a cute bric-a-brac bar, there’s a small rainforest with several levels, a huge tree and a waterfall. Yes, a waterfall. Ask for a table on the second level, hidden behind bamboo trees, and let chef Michael Bryant charm you with is new menu. In the evening, Cliff’s Edge turns into a romantic oasis where you can share oysters, foie gras, sea bass but most of all, Bub and Grandma’s bread. Don’t miss out on their cocktails and wines (Cliff’s Edge was ranked in the 100 best restaurants by Wine Magazine), or else the Corsican owner Pierre will convince you to order one. And you can’t possible say no to the king of the jungle.
