Now’s this could be your legit excuse to have brunch in a hotel. After all, The W Hollywood is still new and now, they’re serving a weekend brunch. And let’s face it, Delphine‘s space is one-of-a-kind. The subtle back-lighting over bookshelves and aquamarine hues, white flourishes and matching crown moldings are calming; it’s up to the scene to complete the dining room’s character. A Hollywood Hotel, it is.
So let’s focus on the food, shall we? Executive Chef Sascha Lyon (Daniel, Balthazar, and Pastis – NYC) will be featuring French classics with some Mediterranean dishes. Choose from the le petit delphine ($58) or le grand delphine ($98) platters for the oysters on the half-shell – and that’s just to get you started. Knock it out of the park by ordering the Whole Roasted Lobster & Fries ($36) as your entree. The good news is there are also more casual menu options like pastas and pizzas, sandwiches and salads – and a thankfully large Les Oeufs section. My eye is particularly drawn back to those French classics, which are include Croque Monsieur ou Madame ($12/13), Eggs Ã la Basquaise ($17) and Steak Frites with BÃ©arnaise ($26), for my follow-up post. Available to wash everything down is fresh-squeezed orange and grapefruit juice, a handful of morning cocktails and glass or carafe options from a small wine list.
If you travel by Metro, there’s added incentive thanks to The W’s prime location on top of a station – in Hollywood. After all, you may as well stroll around nearby Space 15 Twenty while you digest.
