Cavatina at the Sunset Marquis Hotel

It is only fitting that the Sunset Marquis Hotel-famous for its relationship with the music industry-would have a little aria of a restaurant called Cavatina.

Although it’s only in pre-previews until January, I can tell you this re-vamping of the hotel restaurant is going to make for an epic 2014. James Beard award winning Chef Michael Schlow offers a menu made for full sit-down dinners with the family and snacks after late night recording sessions.

Here is a glance of my favorites. Mind you there are many!!

SNACKS: This portion of the menu can best be described as an un-traditional take on comfort foods

Homemade Potato Chips with Green Chile-Green Onion Dip

Deviled Eggs with Crispy Guanciale Bits

Image 

Marcona Almonds with Smoked Paprika

Image

Jalapeno Tater Tots with Smoky Bearnaise

Image

CRUDO: Possibly the best raw I’ve had outside a sushi restaurant

Yellow Tail with Santa Barbara Uni and CaviarI might be the uni-ly person who does not like uni, but it’s worth it for the yellow tail and caviar

Image

Steelhead Trout with Fennel, Grapefruit, and Mint

Image

Cauliflower Panna Cotta with Lobster and CaviarA lobster and desert hybrid??? Yes it’s possible!

Image

SMALL PLATES: Featuring the trendiest foods of 2013, but done in an unexpected way

Grilled Octopus with Black Chick Pea Puree and Spicy Olive Salad

Image

Crispy Brussel Sprouts with Walnuts, pickled jalapeno, and bacon

Image

Beef Tongue with Lentils, Rosemary, and Salsa VerdeAlthough this tasted a little bit like spam, I still ate two pieces 🙂

Image

LARGE PLATES: If you made it this far into the menu…you must be hungry!

Prime Sirloin with burnt herbsgrilled and salted to perfection

Image

Marquis Burger with Cheddar, Crispy Onions, and Horseradish Sauce-This is not pictured because it was eaten too quickly…sooooo good. Grab one of these and a martini and you’re good to go!

Desert: Since at this point it would be impossible to fit anything else, desert is in liquid form

Chocolate Malt Shake
