Andaz West Hollywood Opened Doors January 8th
Andaz West Hollywood has completely re-imagined the fourteen-story former Hyatt on Sunset, affectionately referred to as the “Riot House.” While guests may still find subtle hints and heritage from its earlier days, the new hotel focuses on unique details and the special locale of West Hollywood, California. Andaz worked with New York-based architecture and interior design firm Janson Goldstein to develop the series of engaging spaces featuring design sensibilities tied to the locale of the hotel.
“Our mission has been to make each Andaz property unique to its surrounding area,” says Janson Goldstein principal Hal Goldstein. “We have highlighted the contrasts between the modern and the mid-century, as well as broken down barriers between the indoor and outdoors spaces.”
Thursday, January 8th also marked the opening of the highly anticipated RH restaurant. French-trained chef Sebastien Archambault leads as executive chef and has been working with local vendors and growers to create his “market to table” menu, which focuses on regional, seasonal ingredients and personal choice. In addition to a menu of signature dishes, RH offers a market list, from which guests will be able to choose and customize their own meals. The restaurant showcases local wines inspired by boutique vintners celebrating the best of California.
In the same spirit of openness and transparency that marks the style of RH, Sebastien and his team work in an open kitchen, which anchors the 100-seat bar and restaurant. The walk-in coolers feature glass doors so guests can observe their entire meal taking shape from storage and preparation to cooking and plating.
“Our menu highlights the climate and richness in Los Angeles, and we would like to give new meaning to the concept of honest food,” Sebastien comments.
