The Valley has another New American restaurant to add to the block that comes by way of father and son duo Moez and Karim Megji. Wood & Water made its debut this past weekend on Ventura Boulevard with a sizable 75-seat space, in addition to bar and patio seating to boot.

The former Stir location in Sherman Oaks has new life thanks to a masculine redesign that puts, as the name would suggest, wood, water, and fire elements at the forefront. The focal point of the industrial dining room with mid-century modern accents is a double-sided fireplace lined with stone. In contrast to this fire element, the wall that divides the kitchen and dining room is marked with an expansive raw bar, where ice and an assortment of fresh oysters brings to life the water component of the moniker. Tying it all together is a palette of grays and dark blues with tufted leather banquettes and mid-century wishbone chairs.

The Megjis worked together to draft a modern American menu with heavy international influence, with flavors from places like India and Asia. Of course there will be offerings from that raw bar, small plates, plus an assortment of sustainable meat and vegetable dishes.

Wood & Water will be open from Monday to Wednesday from 4 to 11 p.m., Thursday to Saturday until midnight, and Sunday from 4 to 10 p.m.
