An Upscale Italian Eatery in an Elevated Greenhouse

A New York City export from Michelin star chef Michael White, Morini Ristorante brings an unparalleled culinary experience to a rather industrial area of Culver City. The first west coast location for the upscale Italian eatery sits atop the mixed-use complex PLATFORM in a modern greenhouse with panoramic views of Los Angeles.

The interior expands onto a sprawling patio with outdoor seating that overlooks the shopping center, also designed by Abramson Architects.

Mixing high-end sophistication with a bit of a relaxed California sensibility, the design team implemented marble slabs and moody lighting with warm woods and hand cut tile.
