Enchanted: Forest of Light
Sunday, November 18 - Sunday, January 6
Experience the season with Patina at Descanso Gardens during Enchanted: Forest of Light. With a wide selection of eateries and bars, we have everything you need to stay full and warm while visiting the Gardens. Enjoy dinner at Maple before walking through Enchanted, or visit the Enchanted Market in the main courtyard. Once inside, visit us on the Luminous Lawn and at the Lightwave Lake for mid-adventure sips and savors!
Enjoy a special dinner at Maple Restaurant before heading into Enchanted: Forest of Light! Chef Philip Mack has created the perfect menu to keep you warm, including Whiskey Short Ribs, Mushroom and Cheese Tortellini and Herb-Broiled Salmon. Make reservations to dine at Maple while purchasing your ticket to Enchanted.
Enjoy signature soups, chili, salads and classics including PB & J, Chicken Tenders and a selection of Grilled Cheese from the Winter Cafe. Pair with our hot specialty espresso drinks that will make you feel warm and satisfied for your walk through Enchanted.
Enchanted Market is a tribute to Los Angeles outdoor street food. Walk into a festive courtyard featuring specialties such as Rosa’s homemade tamales and Schreiner’s bacon-wrapped hot dogs topped with caramelized onions, chili and cheese. Team up these warm selections with everyone’s favorite snacks; hand pies, rollos, and cakewich.
Once inside the Gardens, stop by the Luminous Lawn and warm up with an order of our signature beignets. After a little bit of magic, we dust each beignet with confectioners sugar and drizzle with maple syrup! Pair with a glass of your favorite wine or a warm cup of hot chocolate.
Surrounded by interactive lights unlike anything in Los Angeles, the Whiskey Bar is a sprawling combination of outdoor whiskey, wine, beer and a cocktail den. Stop by the Lightwave Lake and take in the sights while sipping on your choice from our extensive whiskey list, or try your tastes with one of our whiskey flights!
