Power Lunch : Chateau Marmont
If you’ve been following my Instagram feed you probably already know that my favorite place to dine on the Sunset Strip is the restaurant inside West Hollywood’s legendary hotel, Chateau Marmont. There is no place I would rather be than enjoying some great conversations while dining outside in the garden on a beautiful California day. Chateau Marmont is actually beautiful all year round and I jump at the chance to find an excuse to spend some time there. There is something so peaceful and serene about the patio. It’s only a matter of seconds before you completely forget that you are only a stone’s throw from Sunset Boulevard and the hustle and bustle of life.
If you must get in trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont – Harry Cohn
I couldn’t have said it better myself. If only the walls could talk. Pfft! If only I were willing to share some of my own stories! Chateau Marmont has been the backdrop of some of pop culture’s most iconic events, the choice home away from home to rockstars of all statues, and the scene for power lunches of the who’s who in Hollywood. Celeb sightings read something like the nominees ballot of a major Hollywood award ceremony; however don’t even think about whipping out that phone to snap a photo or ask for an autograph. So. not. cool. This is not the place for those shenanigans and will not be tolerated. Behave yourself and have fun. If you don’t think you can fight the fangirl urge, stay home.
Now moving on to the important stuff… the food! The menu at Chateau Marmont has a wonderful selection of flavorful dishes and spirits that really make the experience all that more fabulous. Here are some of the delicious entrees and appetizers we’ve noshed on recently while visiting Chateau Marmont.
