THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES House of Macau Restaurant Review

: Around the corner from the W Hotel, House of Macau is another glam addition to the Hollywood nightlife scene, with sprawling digs that feature two cocktail bars, a raw bar, and an outdoor rooftop patio with fire pits. The sultry, multi-level restaurant melds Macanese food and red-lacquered décor with a mod L.A. vibe, and it’s frequented by a hip crowd that gets louder into the late night. Executive chef Christoffer Binotto (Japonais by Morimoto) riffs on Asian-fusion/Macanese flavors; enticing small bites include caviar canapés with golden blini, yuzu and crème fraîche, or crispy rice with uni, sweet soy and chocolate. Jasmine tea-smoked pork baby-back riblets are tasty, but shu mai, pot stickers and salmon teriyaki remain fairly pedestrian. The bacalhau brandade, cod bathed in coconut crème fraîche and cilantro foam, is more interesting, and so is Portuguese-influenced curried chicken with potato, baby turnip and crispy turnip greens. Tropical-tinged cocktails hit pleasant Asian notes. For dessert, the fried banana spring rolls are a must.
