This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE. All opinions are 100% mine.
Located in the towers of The Ritz Carlton in Downtown LA we find WP24 by Wolfgang Puck on the 24th floor. A modern lounge and restaurant with award-winning modern Chinese cuisine and an amazing view over Downtown Los Angeles as you dine. Inside the JW Marriott LA Live you can also find Ford’s Filling Station.
As you enter the floor and make your way toward the restaurant you first have to pass the “nest” which is the amazing bar lounge area that they have. I could seriously spend all my time there, it looks so amazing with the little “nests” around the tables! Thereafter you pass a bar area and lastly you walk into the restaurant are which is lit up by several small amazing lights in the ceiling and an 180 degree view over downtown Los Angeles.

The restaurant was surprisingly not too busy for a Friday night, which we quite enjoyed. The noise level wasn’t loud and we didn’t have to scream to have a conversation. Perfect for catching up with a friend you haven’t seen in a while. The waiters were extremely friendly and seem to have an amazing knowledge on the items on the menu and were to a lot of help as we tried to decide what to order.
We were seated right next to the windows with the view as you can see on the picture. It was amazing, the view itself made it worthy coming here. We started out with some Chili “Dan Dan” Dumplings and XO Seafood Dumplings (on the picture below). Not only was the presentation beautiful but the food was truly amazing with all the rich flavors. As a complementary from the chef we were also sent Maine Lobster Spring Rolls, Steamed Bao Buns, Marinated Cucumbers and Prawn Toast.
Dragon’s Fire Cocktails with Patron Anejo Tequila, Grapefruit and Jalapeño.
For the head I decide to go with the Crispy Skin Kurobuta Pork Belly which came with Wok Fried Green Beans, Golden Chives, Chilies and Garlic. I loved the beans because they were cooked yet crunchy inside and the pork just tasted amazing. Michaela went with the Szechuan Style Prime Beef Tenderloin which was made in Smoked Chili Shallot Sauce and “La You” Hot Oil. The beef was perfectly medium cooked and so amazingly tender! With that we also ordered a Farmer’s Market Vegetable Fried Rice to go with the food, and was sent the Stir Fried Summer Squash from the chef which we both loved. Amazing taste and it had sunflower seeds which I loved.
We finished off the dinner with sharing a Banana Cream Pie with Coconut, Lemongrass and Finger Lime Banana Cocoa Nib Ice Cream. The flavors were perfectly combined and I really liked the coca nibs in the ice cream. We were also sent a few small sweet treats.
