Now that it's officially open (at least for lunch), here we have a nicer Inside look at Paperfish, Joachim Splichal's chic new Beverly Hills seafood spot. The space kind of flows---it has waves and curves a la the ocean---but a reserved, contemporary look designed by Clive Wilkinson, the firm that did Google's headquarters. The bar is pretty swank, serving a shortened menu from 2pm to 8pm until the restaurant goes full throttle on January 7. December is rife with holiday parties, so they're keeping business low profile for now; although we hear the happy hour is rockin' already. More about the chef and menu here.
