mar’sel Hosts the Ultimate Oscar Viewing Party in Los Angeles

Whether it’s the red carpet fashion, films, or celebrity that you love most, mar’sel serves as the ultimate destination to watch the 84th Academy Awards on Feb. 26, 2012. Chef de Cuisine Michael Fiorelli has crafted a specialty bar menu that blends entertainment and cuisine, inspired by the Oscar nominees... 

Nestled above the Pacific Ocean, mar’sel serves as the ideal spot to watch the award show while noshing on The Tree of Life (Frito Pie), Warhorse (war-horseradish potatos), or The Artist (black and white Bodino).

You can test your knowledge by filling out individual Oscar ballots upon arrival, prior to the show.  The guest with the most correct number of selections will win dinner for two at mar’sel.
