THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bar Marmont Restaurant Review

: Just a swagger away from the quietly chic and Old Hollywood-style Château Marmont hotel, this discreetly tucked-away but very hot bar caters to New Hollywood and those who want (or pretend) to be a part of that scene. Dress up, queue up and prepare for the once-over by the door staff. If you get the nod, you’ll descend into the swarm of poseurs, have a martini and maybe, if you can find a seat and flag down a server, sup on such gourmet bar snacks such as vegetable summer rolls or a full-fledged porterhouse. Chef Carolynn Spence, previously of New York’s The Spotted Pig, has beefed up the menu a bit with the likes of crab-sweet corn fritters, gnocchi, hanger steak and a popular burger. On Sunday nights, her buttermilk-fried chicken with biscuits and hot honey has developed a following. The cool crowd finishes with a salted pistachio crumble or chocolate-dulce de leche pudding. The hip space, bathed in red light, rocks till well past midnight --- still one of the sexiest places on Sunset Boulevard.
