Bardot Hollywood
1737 Vine Street

You can't swing a brisket without hitting a celeb at Bardot (previously the Spider Club). That the address is familiar has only worked in the favour of this constantly reinvented space owned by John Lyons (House of Blues, Avalon, Honey) as the list of random drop ins just keeps getting longer. So far Ryan Gosling, Prince, Dan Aykroyd, Pam Grier, various Maddens, Baldwins and Kates (Bosworth, Moss and Hudson) have all popped in for patio and late night dining of small plates of seared sea scallops with celery mousse and choucroute and baked and braised beef brisket with carrots, white chocolate and Shiitake mushrooms, a cuisine that chef Jared Simons calls "promiscuous dining". We don't know what that means but the success of this spot managed by Jason Scoppa and Alexi Yulish may also be in that kind of intentional- unintentional randomness; some nights the music is Big Willie's Burlesque - a jazz band with '20s- style burlesque dancers, some nights it's disco, other nights it's what the spot is calling "Lo Hi Fi". The mish mosh is deliberately continued in the style of the three corners, from tufted banquettes in the bar, to the glass and iron sconces and chandeliers in the Tent Room, to the wood floored Courtyard, creating a kind of old living room comfort that keeps bold faced names at ease and reporters at bay. Even now that the side alley entrance is not so secret.
