Paley., a new restaurant by the Plan Do See global hospitality group, is scheduled to open in Hollywood this winter.
Greg Bernhardt, who helped open Church and State in Los Angeles' downtown Arts District, worked at Mrs. Fish and opened WineBar @ CoffeeBar with Sergio Perera (both also located downtown), will helm the kitchen at Paley.
Details on the menu are slim, but a representative for the restaurant said the food will be California cuisine. We know that's vague — yes, we're all in California, he's opening a restaurant, this is a food blog, after all — but as soon as we get more details, we'll fill you in.
The restaurant is in the Nestor Film Co. building on Sunset Boulevard, which happens to be Hollywood's first movie studio. The location was then home to CBS, hence the restaurant is named after the spirit of CBS C.E.O William S. Paley and his wife Babe.
The 245-seat restaurant is opening in partnership with NeueHouse, a cultural center, and will be located across from the NeueHouse courtyard. From the restaurant's patio, guests will be able to view the center's sculpture plaza, which features six Dustin Yellin "psychogeographies" (glass and stainless steel encased collages) that are on display. Because art always enriches your dining experience, doesn't it?
The Plan Do See group behind Paley. also is responsible for 20 restaurants around the world, including the Michelin-starred Sushi Azabu in New York City and Sushi Kanbe in Kobe, Japan.
6115 Sunset Blvd, Suite 100, Los Angeles.
