Opening Friday on the Sunset Strip

Take a gander at The Guild, West Hollywood’s forthcoming dinner destination, opening this Friday along the Sunset Strip. From subtle classic Hollywood touches to a strong patio presence, the newcomer welcomes with rustic wood accents and a casual feel.

Taking over the former Al Bacio space on Sunset, The Guild is meant to be more than just a dinner stop, with a wine bar tucked off to one side aimed at the casual drinker, while the rest of the attached dining room is composed of two and four tops. Leather banquette seating runs along one wall, draped in light from a collection of industrial lights hanging from the ceiling. The place has a worn in look and feel already, with charming touches like a Constance Bennett quote about fame adorning one wall.

As for the food, expect a collection of American favorites touched off with some international flair, like a $13 wild mushroom bruschetta that’s topped with a quail egg, or a fried artichoke fettuccine. Heavier mains like lamb chops and striped bass help to anchor the easygoing menu overall.

The Guild is scheduled to open for dinner on Friday in West Hollywood, keeping dinner hours only from 5 p.m. to midnight daily. You can make your reservations via OpenTable now.
