Asia De Cuba’s replacement at the Mondrian is officially here.
Chef Brian Malarkey and Enlightened Hospitality Group (EHGRP) partner James Brennan debuted their new eatery, the West Hollywood outpost of their critically acclaimed restaurant Herringbone, to great fanfare last week.
A crowd including Teri Hatcher and Chloe Bridges popped by on Jan. 16 to check out the new space, which was designed by Thomas Schoos.
The decor is a mix of old Hollywood and contemporary California. The 7,500-square foot space features custom chandeliers, Italian Cypress trees and white Carrara marble tops. The centerpiece of the restaurant is a large dining table made from the massive root of an acacia tree that has been dipped in gold.
Guests at the opening fete noshed on the eatery’s ocean-to-table cuisine, including items like seared diver scallops with crispy sweetbreads and whole fish ceviche. The LA menu will also include ecclectic items such as chicken fried sea urchin and waffles.
