Curtis Stone’s gorgeous L.A. sophomore project—the sibling to Beverly Hills’ Maude—greets you with a butcher case as soon as you open the door, where you can buy coils of lamb sausage or hefty cuts of steak to take home. But not everyone is a wiz when it comes to cooking their own meat, which is why the stunning full-service restaurant is worth a visit all on its own. At lunch, find some of the city’s best-kept sandwich secrets—made from the butcher case’s exquisite cuts—plus salads, roast chicken and other delectable day fare. At dinner, find a range of meaty, slow-roasted items cooked over an open fire, as well as small plates, handmade pasta, shellfish and of course Gwen’s expert house-made charcuterie. This Hollywood gem also features a tasting menu in Gwen’s glitzy dining room, where chandeliers dangle above and that open fire pit separates diners from the kitchen for an entirely modern-elegant affair.
