Mondrian Taps Top Chef Brian Malarkey's Herringbone

By Sheryll Alexander

Brian-Malarkey PicmonkeyCelebrity Chef Brian MalarkeyMondrian’s long-running Asia de Cuba food and beverage offerings are no more as celebrity chef Brian Malarkey of BRAVO’s Top Chef and ABC’s The Taste has brought his acclaimed Herringbone restaurant to this landmark Sunset Strip hotel in West Hollywood. Herringbone (part of James Brennan’s Enlightened Hospitality Group) showcases what it calls “ocean-to-table global cuisine.”

WeHo’s award-winning designer Thomas Schoos is behind Herringbone’s new look. Guests can expect organic glam throughout the hotel’s famed indoor-outdoor space. Some of the rather eclectic designs include a long bar made from upside down lobster traps, chandeliers made from ostrich bones and a dining table crafted from a gold-dipped acacia tree root as well as California casual sectional sofas and firepits for relaxing and enjoying the view.

 

Q & A with Chef Brian Malarkey

Why did you choose Mondrian for your next Herringbone incarnation?"Mondrian Los Angeles is an iconic hotel on the amazing Sunset Strip. As a young chef working at Citrus in LA, I used to drive down Sunset Strip in awe of the rich history of WeHo and it has always been a dream of mine to have a restaurant here."

What do you love about West Hollywood as a food, drink and hospitality destination?"I think Los Angeles has an incredible restaurant and chef scene. The overall food culture is so impressive and I’m really excited to be a part of it."

Why is your food based on seafood? What is it about les fruits de la mer that entices you so?"Herringbone is about the “herring” and the “bone.” We really showcase surf and turf dishes; everything from a clam and bone marrow flat bread to smoked salmon tartare. I grew up on the Oregon coast and have always loved the ocean. It’s wild, free and fresh."

What will you offer at your WeHo location that’s different from your other restaurants?"We will be offering more menu items because the kitchen is so large. You’ll see a lot of adventurous and over-the-top surf and turf dishes that we’ve been wanting to try from rabbit and goat to sea urchin and abalone. We’re going to have fun, but also maintain some of the basics like lamb and lobster."

Can you give us some insights into Herringbone’s renovations and decor?"We’ll be taking some elements from Herringbone La Jolla but incorporating several new design details that are a reflection of the hotel itself."

What makes Herringbone the perfect match for Mondrian?"Herringbone’s overall concept is similar to that of Mondrian Los Angeles. It’s somewhat sophisticated and refined, but very fun. The music is great and the vibe is incredible. Herringbone really fits into Mondrian Los Angeles because we’re both all about providing the best possible experience for our guests."

Have you found any WeHo hot spots yet?"Currently, a few of my favorite spots in WeHo are Laurel Hardware and Eveleigh."

Enlightened Hospitality Group manages and operates some of the nation’s top restaurants including Herringbone (La Jolla), Searsucker (San Diego, Austin, Del Mar, Scottsdale) and Gabardine (Point Loma), as well as Stingaree, which is the largest and most exclusive nightlife destination in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter.

Editor's Note: Readers will find links to the website of Herringbone, as well as to the sites of hundreds of other Dining and Lodging options in the Los Angeles area in Taste California Travel's Resource Directory. In our Directory there's also a new guide to “beer-centric” establishments throughout the state.

West Hollywood Named Most Walkable City

W Hollywood Rainbow Crosswalk Picmonkey

West Hollywood November 25, 2013 - Walk Score, a private company whose mission is to promote walkable neighborhoods, has announced that it has once again ranked West Hollywood the most walkable city in the state of California. The walkability ranking rates any address based on its proximity to nearby amenities, such as grocery stores, restaurants, schools, parks and public transit. With a score of 89, West Hollywood’s walkability is ranked higher than San Francisco (with a score of 84), Los Angeles (64) and San Diego (49)

“With its central location and compact size, West Hollywood is the ideal destination for visitors who want to experience the greater Los Angeles area without a car,” said Brad Burlingame, President & CEO of Visit West Hollywood. “West Hollywood visitors appreciate the safe atmosphere, pedestrian-friendly streetscaping and close proximity of our world-class hotels to dining, shopping and entertainment.”

West Hollywood’s Best Walking Districts

At just 1.9 square miles in size, West Hollywood is one of the most densely populated cities in California, an urban village where people frequently utilize the most efficient transportation mode possible – their feet. To help visitors hit their stride, Visit West Hollywood has compiled a series of curated and themed “Walkable WeHo” walking tours on its blog, as well as a thorough guide to a car-free West Hollywood and Los Angeles experience.

Some of West Hollywood’s most popular walking districts include The Sunset Strip, a 1.6-mile stretch of Sunset Boulevard that is home to many of the city’s premier hotels, shopping and restaurants, as well as legendary music and nightlife venues.

Just a few blocks to the south, Santa Monica Boulevard – part of the historic Route 66 – is home to Southern California’s most vibrant LGBT district, with dozens of gay-friendly restaurants, stores, bars and clubs.

Another pedestrian-friendly destination in West Hollywood is the West Hollywood Design District, consisting of Melrose Ave., Robertson Blvd. and Beverly Blvd. The district, which surrounds the landmark Pacific Design Center, is home to nearly 300 interior design showrooms, fashion retailers, restaurants and art galleries. In 2013, the district launched a streetscaping program that will further enhance the pedestrian experience.

Ghost Hunting in West Hollywood

By: Tracy Pattin

Sinatra in 47 PicmonkeySinatra appeared at the Players Club in the '40s

From the glamorous film stars and infamous mobsters of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, to the flamboyant rock stars of the 60s and 70s, West Hollywood is known for its fascinating cast of characters over the decades. They dined, drank, romanced and lived here. Many are gone now, but are their spirits still hanging around? Strolling and partying the night away? According to some…oh yeah.

Here are some great spots to see, hear or feel a spirit or two around town:

1. The Den - 8226 Sunset Blvd.

The bartenders and bar backs insist The Den is haunted. One bar back recently recounted a few spooky incidents–“It’s a little scary late at night after the place is closed and no one is here. I went downstairs to the walk-in refrigerator. I opened the door, put a few things away and shut it. When I started to walk upstairs, suddenly the door opened and shut again all by itself. And these are heavy doors. Another time I heard someone tapping on the stored beer kegs. But no one was there. We think it’s the spirit of a young girl. The creepiest thing is the tiny window downstairs covered in newspaper. That’s where the girl’s spirit has been seen.” So, if you stop by The Den, you might get a good ghost story or two to go with your cocktail.

2. Pink Taco - 8225 Sunset Blvd.

“It’s all about the ghosts on the third floor,”a member of the wait staff says. “Especially the women’s bathroom and the hallway leading up to it.” One of the wait staff took me up to the third floor on an impromptu ghost tour recently. When we walked down the cavernous hall, goose-bumps slowly crept up my arm as we got closer to the infamous spooky bathroom. The building was built in 1940 as Players Club , where stars and mobsters partied the night away. Howard Hughes rented out the entire third floor when he came to dine. Frank Sinatra was rumored to play a set then sneak away through the secret tunnel for a tryst at Chateau Marmont, and then rush back to play his second set. Mickey Cohen and his band of bad boys did some drinking here too (who knows what else they did). No wonder the place is haunted.

3. The Comedy Store - 8433 Sunset Blvd.Lana Turner still PicmonkeyLana Turner

This has been one of the most popular venues on The Strip from the moment it opened as Ciro’s nightclub in 1940. Today, it’s a famous comedy club. But in the wee hours of the morning, it turns back into Ciro’s with ghosts and spirits wanting to party like it was 1940 all over again. There are reports from the employees of piano playing in the Belly Room with no one at the ivories. Wait staff have gone in to set up the room, leave and come back to find candles blown out, and the room reset. Chairs have slid across the main stage. Even a man in a bomber jacket appeared in the daytime in front of one of the comedian/security guards, then vanished right in front of him. Perhaps glamorous film stars like Humphrey Bogart, Lana Turner or Cary Grant are still hanging around. Or maybe a long gone mobster like Mikey Cohen still thinks he rules The Sunset Strip.

4. Book Soup - 8818 W Sunset Blvd.

You’re bound to catch a few ghostly vibes in this historic book store. After all, their next door neighbor (where the newsstand is today) used to house the dead–It was the O’Donnell Mortuary (1920s-1950s). If that isn’t spooky enough stroll past the newsstand, down the “slim magical passageway” to the English cottage and Mystery Pier Books (310.657.5557. 8826 Sunset Blvd)–where all books are first editions dating back centuries. I’ll bet Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Agatha Christie and other famous novelists are hanging around flipping through the pages of their masterpieces.

5.The Rainbow Bar & Grill - 9015 Sunset Blvd.

Originally it was The Mermaid Club (built in the late 1920′s) then became The Villa Nova in 1933. “Old Hollywood” stars drank, dined and even danced here. No wonder the place is haunted. Rachel, a Rainbow employee, took me on a mini ghost tour recently. She took me upstairs into the attic-like bar where all the ghost action is. She described how she organizes her cash register before her shift, comes back a few minutes later and it’s completely reorganized (no one else was around). As she was grabbing a glass to tell me about another ghostly maneuver, suddenly the glass flew out of her hand and broke on the floor. “See? This is what I mean. The glasses get whipped around and shattered all the time up here.” Then she pointed to yet another spooky attic area. “Look over there. That used to be known as “Vampire Lair. It’s supposedly haunted too.”

After you’ve had your fill of The Sunset Strip haunts, take a little stroll down the hill to Santa Monica Boulevard and the famed Barney’s Beanery for a little more West Hollywood Ghost Hunting:

6. Barney’s Beanery - 8447 Santa Monica Blvd.

The Doors at Barneys Beanery PicmonkeyThe Doors at Barney's Beanery barLots of paranormal activity has been reported in this very old establishment (built in 1927).The cook swears that a keg moved on its own in the walk-in refrigerator. That same cook supposedly freaked out about the constant ghostly visits and transferred to another location. Then, one of the wait staff felt as if someone was tugging on her skirt while she was in the same walk-in refrigerator.

A skeptical restaurant manager saw an apparition more than 20 times floating across the hallway in front of his upstairs office. What sold him on all this ghost stuff was the fact that the motion detectors were never triggered. The staff has also reported seeing a shadowy figure outside the office bathroom. So who could be lurking around? Maybe Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison are having a little fun at their old haunt. Janis was known to have had drinks there the night before her death.

West Hollywood Pick Up Line photo Picmonkey

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – September 7, 2013 – The City of West Hollywood has launched “The Pickup Line,” a trolley service that offers free and fun transportation to WeHo's legendary nightlife and dining hotspots, while enabling visitors to enjoy a green and car-free Los Angeles experience. The weekend nighttime trolley runs along Santa Monica Boulevard on Friday and Saturday nights from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. The Pickup debuted on August 16, and has attracted more than 1,400 riders per weekend.

“The Pickup is our newest effort to make West Hollywood even more walkable,” said West Hollywood Mayor Abbe Land. “One of my favorite things about this city is that you can walk to so many places, and this will help you go even further. Now, you can party like a VIP – get picked up and dropped off right in front of your favorite destinations along Santa Monica Boulevard.”

“The official launch of the Pick-Up brings an entirely new level of fun and convenience to the WeHo party scene,” said West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tempore John D’Amico. “It's free, it's convenient, it's about fun and it’s about time. Use the Pick-Up every Friday and Saturday night,” continued Mayor Pro Tempore D’Amico.

The PickUp Line is a four-mile long loop with stops every two to three blocks, offering passengers a lift every 15 minutes. The goal of The PickUp is to provide an alternative to the automobile and bring an energetic and playful transit option to one of West Hollywood’s busiest nighttime districts.The PickUp aims to steer riders to popular local venues with its flirtatious take on public transit. The soundtrack onboard The PickUp will be a mash-up of the prolific beats of Derek Monterio, one of West Hollywood’s talented DJs.

Riders of The PickUp will enjoy perks that will make the switch from car to trolley well worth it. VIP entry to The Abbey means no waiting in line to get into the world’s most notorious gay bar; plus two-for-one Abbey breakfasts before noon. Micky’s, is offering no cover and priority admission. Hugo’s has one free appetizer with entrée for PickUp patrons. Riders getting off at Fubar get one $1 drink and a stop at Here Lounge gets PickUp riders half off their first drink. New perks will be added throughout the pilot program.

Bob Hope Golf Memorabilia to be Auctioned

 Bob and Dolores Hope Golfing Picmonkey

In 1933 Bob Hope walked into the Vogue Club in New York City and a young beauty by the name of Dolores Reade was on stage, singing. “It was love at first song,” he said. Soon after, they had their first date and discovered a mutual passion that helped clinch the deal. Golf. In a lovely restaurant with a pristine white table cloth as their drawing board, they scribbled drawings and diagrams of holes they had played and where their shots landed. Little did they know that that evening would be the beginning of almost 70 years together and that golf would be a source of endless conversations, instructions, despair and laughter. Later in life, Bob and Dolores Hope attributed their mutual love of the game as one of the ingredients of contributing to the success of their marriage.

Hope never left home without his clubs. From the deserts of Iraq to the jungles of Vietnam to the steel decks of ocean going battleships, he stood on stages, club in hand, and brought laughter and a touch of home to American troops abroad. He played golf whenever and wherever he could, even driving balls off the USS Iowa toward cheering sailors aboard a nearby ship. On the home front, the Hopes built their Toluca Lake estate virtually next door to Lakeside Country Club where they became lifetime members.

But it was the siren call of golf in Palm Springs that led to the most important professional and philanthropic collaboration of their marriage; the symbiotic relationship between the Bob Hope Desert Classic and the establishment of the Eisenhower Medical Center. In 1965 Hope became the “driving” force behind the Desert Classic and Dolores Hope became the primary mover and shaker behind the founding of the Eisenhower Medical Center, named after their good friend, Dwight D. Eisenhower. As ground was being broken for the Center, the Classic was quickly becoming one of the most successful pro-am tournaments in the country. Over the next 47 years the Classic raised millions and millions of dollars for the Eisenhower Medical Center, as well as many other desert charities. Dolores Hope was EMC President for seven straight years, then chairperson and for the rest of her life remained involved in key leadership capacities and dedicated to its cause. She once said, “I played a lot of golf before I became involved with the Center, Yes, my game has suffered, but my life has been greatly enriched.”

Gerald Fold, 38th President of the United States, said, “Bob Hope has contributed immeasurably to the good things golf can provide.” Ford and Hope were very close friends and shared a passion for the game. However, Ford was infamous for beaning folks in the galleries and this, of course, made him one of Hope's most favorite subjects. “There are over 50 golf courses in Palm Springs and Jerry never knows which one he's playing until after he tees off,” Hope once joked to great laughs. But he was a friend of many presidents and played golf with several of them regularly. President Richard Nixon once famously landed in the presidential helicopter on the grounds of the Hope estate and whisked him off to play a round with Jimmy Stewart and Fred McMurray at nearby Lakeside. At the White House, Hope once demonstrated is putting acumen by knocking the ball into an ashtray held by Nixon. George H. Bush joined Hope for on the Desert Classics, as did Bill Clinton. Clinton and Hope enjoyed many laughs together, and Bob loved his spirit and wonderful sense of humor. After Hope's death President Clinton took on the hosting duties at the newly named Humana Challenge, formerly the Bob Hope Desert Classic.

Golf was at the center of Bob and Dolores Hope's long lives. It gave them great joy, great friends and the opportunity to do very, very good work. Julien's Auctions of Beverly Hills has announced the auction of property from the collection of Bob and Dolores Hope will take place on Friday, September 20th and Saturday, September at Julien's Auctions' Beverly Hills gallery. The auction will include the golf memorabilia and memories from the Hope homes, as well as an array of treasures including paintings, Desert Classic items, golf clubs, awards and statues, signed Bob Hope Chrysler Classic photographs and Bob Hope's E-Z golf cart. Other Hope memorabilia includes signed Presidential books and photographs, award plaques, trophies, figurines and novelty items from political luminaries and celebrities. For more information see www.juliensauctions.com.

Bob and Dolores Hope wanted their golf treasures to go to auction so that fans and friends might be able to remember them and enjoy a piece of history. All benefits from the sale of property from the collection of Bob and Dolores Hope will go to the Bob and Dolores Charitable Foundation to support America's veterans and to help feed the poor.

August 2, 2013 Wine Pick of the Week

 

(N/V) Rossana Rossana horizontal-thumb- Picmonkey

 

Horsehill Vineyards

 Appellation: Los Angeles County

 Alcohol: 11.5%

 Suggested Retail: $15

 

“Rosanna is a sparkling wine produced from a partnership of the Collins College of Hospitality Management and College of Agriculture of Cal Poly Pomona and South Coast Winery in Temecula.

The name Rossana is a reference to an Arabian mare owned by W.K. Kellogg, whose horse ranch of yesteryear is now home to Cal Poly Pomona in southern California. The Horsehill Vineyards identity is an obvious reference to the legacy of the land.

There's also a history to the vines that supplied the fruit for Rossana. The Horsehill Vineyards Zinfandel is the product of cuttings taken from very old vines on the De Ambrogio Ranch in nearby Rancho Cucamonga, an area with a history of producing high quality winegrapes before it finally fell prey to the pressure of development. The website of the Farm Store at Kellogg Ranch indicates the wine is available at $15 a bottle. It's also on the list at the Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch (open during the school year only) for $30.

“Rossana's color is relatively deep for a rosé. The wine shows assertive qualities of strawberries and cherries. We'd like to see more Zinfandel-based sparklers like this. It's neither complex nor sophisticated, but Rossana is a respectable choice in a modestly priced sparkling wine. Though produced in very limited quantities, its presence in the marketplace offers consumers a stylistic option and honors history. Proceeds from this wine support a culinary garden located near the student-managed and operated Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch.”

Food affinity: “Sparkling wines aren't just for celebrations. Most are more food-friendly than people realize. We'd happily drink this one with almost anything on a brunch buffet and would like it with grilled sausages at a late summer barbecue.”

Most of the restaurants overlook the ocean, and almost any type of water sports can be arranged from rental shops. The map lists hotels, sites of interest, apartments, marinas, yacht clubs, shopping, and calendar of waterfront events.

The Harbor & Pier Walking Map isavailable throughout the King Harbor and Pier shops and stores, and at the Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau, 200 Pacific Coast Highway in Redondo Beach.
