Ray’s & Stark Bar in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is adding an extensive water menu to its offerings, serving up twenty varieties from ten different countries. Launching August 12th, the 45-page menu aims to educate people on how to taste water based on elements like mineral content and origin.

Ray’s & Stark Bar’s general manager, Martin Riese (a certified Water Sommelier), conceptualized the menu to complement Executive Chef Kris Morningstar’s Mediterranean-inspired seasonal menu. He said:

This menu has been a long time in the making. Water has a significant impact on the way we taste food, just as with wine and spirits. We are already accustomed to pairing food with wine or beer, but many people don’t know that water is just as important to the entire dining experience.

LACMA Restaurant Offers 45-Page Luxury Water Menu

Staff will suggest water pairings similarly to how they would wine. The water menu will be presented in booklet-form with tasting notes, mineral content, bottle price and photos.

Guests can choose from carefully chosen waters including Badoit from France, Vichy Catalan from Spain, and Riese’s own Beverly Hills 9OH2O. Each water is available for sale by the bottle and Riese also offers guests a tasting menu for $12.
