UCLA Luskin Conference Center Quarterly Newsletter — November 2016Connect, refresh and collaborate at Plateia

Not all breakthroughs happen in meetings

After spending a long, productive day in one of the Luskin Conference Center’s comfortable meeting rooms, you are full of enthusiasm, inspiration and new ideas. But we know collaboration and thought-provoking dialogue isn’t just confined to meeting rooms, but is often carried into other places and spaces. And Plateia, the Center’s Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and lounge, is one of those special places.

It’s the perfect spot to refresh and brighten up your palate and your mind — at lunch, dinner or at the end of the day for continued conversations with your colleagues, associates, and friends.

Plateia offers unparalleled ambience — with its expansive outdoor patio, canopied by Ancient Olive trees and both water and fire features, it is truly an amazing setting to behold and enjoy. Twenty-foot floor-to-ceiling glass doors are opened each day at dusk to create a gorgeous, seamless flow between the restaurant, lounge and lobby. Relax with a specialty cocktail, a glass of California wine, or a pint of locally brewed beer while you enjoy Happy Hour hors’d oeuvres from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Plateia’s exciting menus include cravable options for lunch, dinner and lounge dining. Signature dishes — such as the Barrel Burger, bone-in Short Rib, Crisp Branzino or stone fired pizzas — are guest favorites for lunch or dinner. Small plates of warm olives, fried polenta, or duck-fat fries are popular choices with one of Plateia’s specialty cocktails, like the 29’er or the Marco Polo.

Take in the total Luskin Conference Center experience. Savor the outstanding cuisine and inviting atmosphere found only in Plateia. Remember… breakthroughs and inspiration don’t just happen in meetings — they happen wherever ideas, knowledge, and inspiration are being shared.
