Spring Tracking: Octavio Becerra's Palate in May

New, 1 comment

Palate Food + Wine from Patina Group alum Octavio Becerra was supposed to open in February, but, as seen earlier this month, it's not quite there yet. There's been progress since those pictures, but construction is still in the works and help wanted signs hang on the door and windows. Becerra gave us the scoop: Palate will be restaurant, wine bar and retailer, cheese cellar, and "eno-gastronomic library" on the ground floor of the seven-story Bekins building on Brand Avenue (former Cinnabar space). The food will be simple with Mediterranean sensibilities and seasonal and artisinal ingredients. Expect a robust wine list for dining and drinking in, plus retail, and a walk-in cheese cellar with more than 50 selections from around world, courtesy cheesemonger Sebastian Robin Craig from the Cheese Store of Beverly Hills. And if all that's not ambitious enough, they plan to have more than 200 titles in the library---cookbooks, books on wine, cheese, coffee, culinary histories---for perusing. New debut date: May.
