MID-CITY— Through Halloween, Ray's and Stark Bar have collaborated with director/artist Tim Burton (whose exhibit is now showing at LACMA) for a Dr. Burton cocktail and two Tim Burton-approved dishes. The cocktail was inspired by Burton's favorite soda, Dr. Pepper, and calls for rum, cherry herring, Disarono, and Amaro Ciociar ($13). Meanwhile, the Burton-approved dishes include razor clams in squid olive broth with polenta, burned octopus, fresh herbs, and piqulo peppers ($16), and white rabbit with tea in a "mushroom forest" ($27).
