What to Eat at Delphine, Open Thursday at The W Hotel Hollywood

Delphine will debut this Thursday at the new W Hotel in Hollywood. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner under exec chef Sasha Lyon, formerly of Daniel, Pastis, and Balthazar in New York, the restaurant offers a menu resembling a traditional brasserie’s, down to the French descriptions for each section of dishes. Though French onion soup, frisee, moules frites, and croquet madame make necessary appearances, there is also room for New American influence, along with both ingredients and dishes ranging from Italy to the British Isles and even Mexico, if huevos rancheros count.

This French Frankenstein is the latest creation of IDG (Innovative Dining Group), responsible for Sushi Roku, Katana, BOA, and Robata Bar. There seems to be a little for anybody with a hunger for Mediterranean flavors, with a raw bar, pizzas, steak frites, grilled Greek salmon, and the most substantial part of the menu dedicated solely to egg dishes and a few breakfast-for-dinner plates. The restaurant tells us to expect Provençal specials popping up, like a cassoulet on Sundays or risotto Milanese with braised veal. Delphine’s full dinner menu is below. 6250 Hollywood Blvd. 323-798-1355.
