La Vida Restaurant and Lounge Comes To Hollywood

New, 23 comments

Make room for yet another restaurant-lounge hybrid, La Vida, conceived by Sunset Entertainment Group, better known for places like Green Door and Pig ‘n Whistle. Debuting February 16, the La Vida will serve Spanish-influenced Cali cuisine under the leadership of Rivera alum Joseph Panarello. Menu highlights include Black Bean Brushed Quail, Sonoma Lamb Sausage with Yogurt Sauce, and Tagine Roasted Jidori Chicken Breast, with appetizers in the $13ish ballpark and entrees in the $20s. Good news for anyone out late, in addition to serving lunch and dinner, La Vida also offers a late night menu available from Thursday to Saturday until midnight.

As far as design (headed by Touster Wright Design), owners looked to capture the essence of Southern Spain in five separate rooms: a white plaster-arched dining courtyard partially covered by overhanging barrel-vaulted beam; a reception bar with aqua blue glass tile; a main dining room which sits under a canopy of hand-blown glass fixtures and features a gold tiled fireplace; and a main bar clad in three-dimensional aqua blue wall material. Of course, it wouldn't be a Hollywood club without the requisite VIP room. Basically, the deal here is that La Vida will mostly serve as a restaurant during the day (lunch, dinner) and at night tables will be moved for more of a lounge-y set up. [EaterWire]
