The Tim Burton Retrospective is drawing crowds to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and savvy attendees will be sure to time their visit with room for a drink and some eats at Ray's and Stark Bar, the patio-style bar and restaurant that have recently opened up at the venue.Having already created a delicious cocktail, the Dr. Burton, that plays on the cineaste's affinity for Dr. Pepper (it's made with DonQ white rum with Amaretto, Cheery Heering and Amaro CioCiara), two Burton-approved dishes have gone on the dining room menu, and can be served up by request: Razor clams in squid olive broth with polenta island, burned octopus, fresh herbs, and piqulo peppers ($16) and white rabbit with tea in a mushroom forest ($27).

The dishes, and the drink, are available until the exhibit closes, October 31, 2011.
