Tonight’s the first night you can (literally) tickle the piano keys at Ivory on Sunset, Brian Malarkey’s restaurant transition away from Herringbone in West Hollywood. With the midsummer arrival of Herringbone Santa Monica, the original iteration inside the Mondrian West Hollywood was made largely redundant, so the The Taste star has pivoted the place into the new market-driven concept you see above.
The idea with Ivory on Sunset is combine Malarkey’s modern California cooking with a share plates format and a killer restaurant space. Fan favorites like veal and pork meatballs make an appearance, as will hamachi crudos, bowls of pork belly, and larger mains, all dished out in what may well be one of the new year’s best patios.
Indoor-outdoor elements are nearly seamless at Ivory on Sunset, which was handled by the Built, Inc. team and marks the first Hakkasan-h.wood group culinary project since their merger last year. at 7,500 square feet there’s room for multiple bars, dim, lamplit indoor tables, and causal outdoor seating alike. And yes, there's a real piano inside.
Ivory on Sunset opens tonight for dinner, and will keep breakfast and lunch hours in the new year.
