LOS ANGELES—Cavatina, located inside the Sunset Marquis hotel, has officially opened its doors. The full service restaurant features dishes prepared by chef and restauranteur Michael Schlow.
“In a town crowded with restaurant options, we are proud to present something truly unique into the culinary scene,” Gruendyke says. “No place will celebrate the clean, simple flavors of California like we will at Cavatina; we’re so lucky to have a chef of Michael’s caliber leading the way.”
Dinner will feature a menu that is broken into four categories: snacks, a crudo section, small-plates, and entrees. Highlights include Cauliflower Panna Cotta with Lobster and Caviar; Beef Tongue with Lentils, Rosemary, and Salsa Verde; Crunchy Olives with Cabrales and Speck Powder; and Simply Prepared Mediterranean Sea Bass with Shaved Vegetables.
For lunch, Schlow and his team will prepare fresh salads, sandwiches, simple fish dishes, and Schlow’s award-winning burger.
Cavatina will offer breakfast seven days a week, and will continue the hotel’s tradition of a brunch on Sundays as well as provide room service to the hotel and poolside dining.
Schlow is proud to be teaming up with Sunset Marquis Executive Chef Roger Eggleston, charged with running the kitchen’s day-to-day operations. Eggleston was previously with Montage of Beverly Hills, where he was instrumental in transforming Ten Pound, a scotch bar inside the Montage, into a dining destination. Previously, Eggleston worked as Executive Sous Chef at Bardessono in Napa Valley, working alongside Chef Sean O’Toole who recently went on to open Torc in Napa. Eggleston’s credentials also include working with three Michelin starred chefs Alain Ducase, Daniel Humm, and his mentor Christopher Kostow while at Campton Place.
Cavatina’s grand opening is scheduled just in time for the Grammys.
