STUDIO CITY (CBS) — For the latest “Dine on a Dime,” Entertainment Reporter Suzanne Marques goes to a decadent throwback restaurant, the Black Market Liquor Bar in Studio City.

Marques even helped the owner, Antonia Lofaso, a well-known “Top Chef” contestant (season 4 and All-Stars) prepare one of her show-stopping recipes.

Black Market Liquor serves up comfort foods from around the world, classic cocktails (with all fresh ingredients), deep fried cauliflower with a lemon aioli and fluffer nutters — marshmallow fluff, peanut butter and banana.

Lofaso’s menu inspiration was an easy one. “It’s totally crazy and selfish, but I said ‘What do I want to eat if I’m sitting here.”

Marques helped Lofaso make her favorite dish. “It’s the one I take from restaurant to restaurant,” Lofaso says. “The mussels. I love them.” (Her secret ingredient? Sugar! Who would have thunk it!?)

Black Market Liquor Bar is open Monday-Sunday from 5 p.m. until 2 a.m. (Reservations required for parties of six or more.)
