Today we hear details from Delphine, the restaurant planned to open at W Hollywood Hotel and Residences on January 28th. The product of IDG, the manufacturers of BOA, Katana, and Sushi Roku, Delphine will have bistro bar seating, tiles recalling the Parisian Metro, and barrel wood ceilings. But its greatest asset appears to be Sascha Lyon of New York’s Daniel, Balthazar, and Pastis, focusing on traditional Provençal cooking with influences from Italian villages and the Mediterranean Coast for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There will also be a raw bar, pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches.
The 6,000-sq.-foot space will also have two lounges serving bar menus. Station Hollywood will handle outdoor duties with a retractable viewing screen for events and already sounds vintage-y in name. Could classic cocktails follow? Then there’s The Living Room indoors, already labeled by the company as both ”posh” and “W’s re-interpretation of the traditional hotel lobby.” Guess that answers our question on what’s the next thing someone will say ‘isn’t being done right.’ In any case, expect a lot of hoopla next month as this is rolling out to be a show-stopper production at Hollywood and Vine. 6250 Hollywood Blvd. See examples of what Lyon will be serving below.
