While places on LA city's white-hot list may only last as long as your latest Botox injection, the exclusive club Falcon is enjoying its ride as a haven for the fabulous. Guest-list only, Falcon draws an intriguing mix of svelte stars-in-waiting and industry-types of dubious specialties. The real star is the outdoor patio -- an airy expanse sunken below the main dining room with sky-high white walls, tall, narrow windows with billowy white curtains and a distinctly absent roof that gives the loud, bustling area an almost tropical energy. The main dining area is a mix of ow-lit romance and modern minimalism, while the zebrawood walls are lined with sleek booths. While privacy is not easily achieved in this wide-open setup, romance-seekers should ask for one of the two little tables nestled in doorframe-like nooks that overlook the patio. Drink prices are fairly reasonable given the locale, with fancy house martini specialties spanning the gamut of flavors and colors, from the peach-flavored Diamond to the sweet-tart Key Lime pie.
