Though originally slated for a summer debut in West Hollywood, it now looks as though Norah will arrive by the end of January instead. Housed in the former (and short-lived) Don’t Tell Mama space right on Santa Monica Boulevard, Norah plans to bring a mix of rustic American and true Southern flavors to the table.
Owned by Rohan Talwar, a restaurateur hailing from India, and with a kitchen run by Mike Williams (who was previously at Tipple & Brine and, before that, The Tasting Kitchen), Norah is set to debut by the end of the month, if all goes according to plan.
Much of the delay can be attributed to the extended build-out, which now includes a custom-made grill for live fire cooking, and a completely overhauled dining space. Thomas Schoos is behind the redo, which will also include a long marble bar.
John Snowden (previously of Goldie’s) steps in as General Manager, and Hamish McShane will oversee the bar program, which is focused on seasonal cocktails and a strong wine list. Look for Norah to open in West Hollywood by end of month, or early February at latest.
