New Hotel Dining
Roy Choi’s new POT restaurant will open any day now at The Line Hotel in Koreatown. Choi, who is overseeing all food and beverage at the new hotel, has been working on the menu in his test kitchen, but look for hot pots, blood soups and Korean BBQ as only Papi can do. The Line Hotel opens in January. Also in Koreatown, Gary Menes lands his Le Comptoir pop-up at the renovated Normandie Hotel this spring. The small eight-person counter will open five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday.
Downtown’s new Ace Hotel opens on January 6, with a big concert in the building's historic theater on February 14, but the restaurant, which is still unconfirmed but said to be from Brooklyn’s Five Leaves restaurateurs, will debut sometime in between.
Boston’s Michael Schlow has changed the menu and concept for the Sunset Marquis restaurant in West Hollywood. Now named Cavatina, it features local, seasonal cuisine kissed with Mediterranean flavors that fit the lush surroundings of the hidden gem. Look for an opening in early January.
The Italian-focused Terraza will debut in the former Veranda space at Casa del Mar in February, with a floor-to-ceiling redesign and same ocean views. And the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey’s Jer-Ne is getting overhauled to become Cast & Plow.
