Step inside Norah, the completely redone West Hollywood dinner spot from international restaurateur Rohan Talwar and chef Mike Williams. The Thomas Schoos-designed space is a beam-to-tail retrofitting of the former Don’t Tell Mama nightclub space on Santa Monica Boulevard.

Inside, the space is airy and warm, with loads of wood wrapping that runs up the walls. The ceiling is open to the rafters, while the marble bar is bisected into black and white. Lounge-y couches and chairs invite guests to linger, though long communal tables make for much of the seating, with the rest done up in a mismatched variety of two-, four- and six-tops.

Chef Williams’ opening menu is a blend of rustic New American flavors, done with a California backbone. There’s a daily market crudo, heritage pork glazed with cider, an oyster selection, and a lobster bolognese gnocchi. The full menu is below.

Norah opens for dinner tonight. Daily hours for the restaurant run 5:30 p.m. to midnight, and reservations can be made on OpenTable.
