EVELEIGH Restaurant Review

: With its rustic d├ęcor and open-air atmosphere, EVELEIGH is an unexpected pastoral retreat on the Sunset Strip. The vibrant bar and communal dining tables help foster an unpretentious ambience, but the West Hollywood address still makes the restaurant a magnet for the young and beautiful. We recommend requesting a table on one of the lovely patios. Chef Jordan Toft's gastropub menu is seasonally driven, with importance placed on sustainable ingredients. Start with the burrata and crushed peas with mint, Arbequina olive oil and almonds, or crispy seasoned squid served with a preserved lemon-mayonnaise for dipping. Main dishes range from roasted Jidori chicken to whole sea bass with herbs, wilted greens and beurre blanc to organic rib-eye steak with onions, salsa verde and confit finglings. End on a lighthearted note with the chocolate chip cookie sandwich and mint chip ice cream, or a bit more seriously with the peach cobbler. The creative, esoteric wine list focuses on small boutique wineries and offers a few options by the carafe. Also widespread is the cocktail and spirits list, cultivated by talented mixologists that might even whip something special up to suit your preferences. Cocktail pitchers, such as the signature lemonade spiked with chamomile-infused tequila, are perfect for larger parties. Weekend brunch presents intriguing juices and smoothies plus twists on standards such as spelt hot cakes with burnt apricot, whipped honeycomb butter and bay leaf maple syrup.
