Chef Brian Dunsmoor has been trying to crack his new restaurant Hatchet Hall for the better part of nine months, but it seems now that the West Culver City restaurant is ready to roll. According to their own social media, Hatchet Hall opens for dinner tonight.
So what can you expect? For one, Dunsmoor’s personal brand of cooking, which marries Southern tones with fresh local ingredients, and always packs a lot of flavor. There will also be plenty to drink, as Hatchet Hall expands on the bar scene set forth from previous tenant Waterloo & City, even including a separate cozy back bar space for maximum access to top-notch cocktails.
Sadly, there’s no full menu available on the restaurant’s website just yet, but peeks at their various social media channels show a heavy reliance on animal proteins and seafood, which is to be expected given the chop-heavy name.
Mostly, be on the lookout for Dunsmoor himself, along with partners Jonathan Strader and Louie and Netty Ryan (wine maestro Maxwell Leer is also involved). They’ll be working the floor during this soft-open phase, navigating the seriously reconstructed space.
More news as it comes, but expect Hatchet Hall to go big tonight, starting at around 6 p.m.
