The SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills debuts a new dining concept called Le Monde this Thursday, November 17. The French-themed pop-up features a four-course menu that is accompanied by an animated, 3D show designed by TableMation Studios. (The Ritz-Carlton hotel served a similar immersive dining experience last year in the now-closed WP-24 space.)
Le Monde, which will run from now until some time next year, a representative tells Eater, will host two seatings from Wednesday to Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. in the former Bazaar space. The set menu, which is designed by the hotel’s head chef Hussain Zouhbi, is priced at $149 (plus service charge and taxes) on Wednesdays and Thursdays and $169 (plus service charge and taxes) on Fridays and Saturdays. Wine parings start at $30. A new speakeasy called Wasp in a Wig also opened on the property in October.
The latest openings follow the closure of chef José Andrés’s two restaurants inside the hotel, the Bazaar and Somni, in 2020 due to a lawsuit filed by the hotel’s owners alleging that Andrés’s restaurant group failed to “address structural, cost-cutting measures” and propagated “detrimental and negative statements about [the hotel’s owner]” to staff.
