What to Eat at Third Street Station, Open Friday in West Hollywood

All aboard?

This Friday, chef owner Dion Rottman debuts 3rd Street Station, the Silvergreens founder’s own Proustian Madeline of a brasserie and pub influenced by a childhood spent flitting through Europe while visiting his mother’s native France. Teamed with Magnolia-magnate Sky Reiss, Rottman plans this train station-influenced space to reflect a sort of culinary Eurotrip, including food from France, Spain, Germany, Italy, and The United Kingdom on one menu, all under the hand of Greg DeMichiel, owner of sustainable catering company Eat. Want to see what DeMichel is cooking?

On lunch, dinner, and late-night menus, DeMichiel includes gastro-pubby hits like duck fat fries and currently ubiquitous crispy brussel sprouts, along with classic French favorites like Nicoise, coq au vin, and croque madame, alongside tempting variations and upgrades on the familiar, as in a paella with roasted habaneros, fish-n-chips with line-caught cod, Merguez tortas, wild rabbit cassoulet, and a mac and cheese with fontina and cheddar. It’s the rare menu that has our mouths prematurely watering, with a selection that is extensive, but edited down nicely to some of the clearest hits of European pub, brasserie, and bar cooking.

In addition to the dinner menu you see below, Third Street Station will also offer classic cocktails, beers from Belgium, Germany, Ireland, and San Diego, imported vino, and made-to-order coffee and espresso, seven days a week from 11:00 A.M. to 2:00 A.M.

3rd Street Station, opening Friday at <>8486 W. 3rd St. West Hollywood. 323-782-8466.
