Last year, a strange Parisian concept in the form of L'Assiette opened on Melrose just a few blocks west of La Brea serving a basic menu of steak and fries. Today comes news that Le Relais De l’Entrecôte, the classic steakhouse that inspired L'Assiette, is opening a huge outlet with indoor and outdoor seating in a large plot across from Cecconi's on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood.
The arrangement, set up by broker Jamie Rogers at CBRE, introduces an internationally recognized steak concept in a prime location. Many of the restaurants on this block tend to be the kind of places that celebrities flock to, from Cecconi's and Craig's to Gracias Madre.
The interior design will reflect the Paris original, with small wooden chairs, red hues, and classic French cues all around. Though L'Assiette started the steak frites-only trend in Los Angeles, Le Relais De l’Entrecôte is notable mostly for its remarkable, buttery herb sauce.
At the moment, the restaurant is set to open in the first quarter of 2015.
