Restaurant Opening: Delphine, Station Hollywood and the Living Room at W Hollywood

January 25, 2010 |  6:00 am

The hotly anticipated W Hollywood is finally ready for its closeup. The uber-modern hotel opens to the public on Jan. 28 and so does its resident restaurant, Delphine, and its two bars, Station Hollywood and the Living Room.

Delphine is the work of Innovative Dining Group (the same people who gave L.A. the fashionable but not-too-inventive restaurants Sushi Roku, BOA Steakhouse, Katana and Robata Bar). With Delphine, IDG hopes to dip its toes into the Riviera with a menu of French classics created with a fresh and modern sensibility and plenty of Mediterranean influences. 

Executive Chef Sascha Lyon (New York’s Michelin three-star Daniel, Balthazar and Pastis) has cooked up breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch menus. Entrees include trout meunière, moules frites au Pernod, cassoulet, spinach lasagna bolognese and risotto Milanese with braised veal. At lunch you'll find more casual fare like croque monsieurs or madames and nicoise salads. There is also a raw bar and a lengthy list of French wines, among other global varieties.

Station Hollywood (named for the Hollywood and Vine subway stop that is literally located beneath the building--use it, people!) is a split-level outdoor bar that will serve artisanal cocktails and small plates; and the Living Room is a glamorous indoor bar with 40-foot ceilings and a banging sound system. Expect this to be a staging ground for plenty of glitzy events.

Delphine at W Hollywood & The Residences, 6250 Hollywood Blvd. Open seven days a week, for breakfast from 6:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.; lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and dinner from 5 to 10:30 p.m. Sundays through Wednesdays and 5 p.m. to midnight Thursdays through Saturdays. Station is open 5 p.m. to midnight Sundays through Thursdays and 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. (323) 798.1355; www.restaurantdelphine.com.
