Have a look at Caulfield's Bar and Dining Room, the somewhat re-imagined restaurant and drinkery on the ground floor of Thompson Beverly Hills. Restaurant owners Laurie Mulstay and Ron Marino (Magnolia, The Bar, Bar Chloe) recently brought on new chef Stephen Kalt who rolls out his American-Mediterranean menu tomorrow, and in tow comes a re-outfitted space by Heather Ashton who helped design The Standard Hollywood and also serves as the creative director for HD Buttercup.
From the before and after above, it's evident the space has changed, if slightly. No more plant motifs or bistro dining room chairs, in place comes clean white walls and faux leather arm chairs which look very similar to the ones at Cecconi's. There's also newly added banquettes, perched marble-topped bar/dining tables, and this menu.
