A Look at Dakota Weiss’ New Menu at NineThirty

The W Los Angeles - Westwood’s signature restaurant NINETHIRTY scored a major coup recently when it hired chef Dakota Weiss, who was blowing minds at Hotel Shangri LA with her imagination-pushing New American market cuisine. The Cali-raised, French-trained Weiss just introduced a new menu at The W and we have it below for your perusal. Passionately sourced produce immediately leaps forward in a selection of small plates and shareables that include a cauliflower bisque with goat cheese crouton, parsnip gratin, charred broccoli with red chili oil, a salad of smoked blue cheese with endive and grapes, and seared hamachi with porcini mascarpone, Napa cabbage, and pickled mushrooms. From the same section, lobster and brie sliders are a creamier indulgence, while mac and cheese carries Granny Smith apples and smoked bacon. Main courses feature a smoked cheddar cheeseburger, pan roasted scallops, drunken mussels with hominy, and beef bourguignon with pappardelle, all endowed with generous play from our markets in rich preparations using root vegetables, fungi, greens, and sauces made from local product.
