Beverly Hills has a new hotspot to enjoy tonight, with the imminent arrival of Canon Club. Housed in a long-rehabbed space right on Canon Drive in what used to be a Korean-Italian spot called Erbe Matte, the upscale destination has plans to become a seafood haven for the rich and famous.
The chef behind the stoves is Edy Lucas, former sous at All’Acqua (and prior to that, Fishing with Dynamite). The menu is a predictable play on surf and turf, with evening options for fresh oysters, raw fish, and grilled meats cooked over a wood-fired grill. Cocktails and wine are also offered in abundance.
As for the look, expect something a bit less stuffy for the area. Yes, there are the necessary white tablecloths, but a tall ceiling, hanging pendant lights and touches of tile give the place more charm than you might expect. Outside, a tight patio leaves seating for a dozen or so, with some greenery strewn in for good measure.
Canon Club soft-opens for dinner tonight, with hours from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
