Estrella, West Hollywood, CA

Estrella Restaurant Review

: Estrella may be housed in a modern building off the middle of the Sunset Strip, but its bohemian ambience is reminiscent of a 60s bungalow in Laurel Canyon. (The restaurant is named after the circus girl mentioned in the Joni Mitchell song "Ladies of the Canyon.") There are three distinct areas: a patio along the boulevard, the “West” patio where a piano and fireplace create a cozy corner; and the inside, featuring the bar, decorated with eclectic elements to ensure that the mood stays in tune. There is also the Ma Lounge, a private dining room with an open patio and private entrance from the garage valet. Chef Mirko Paderno and his Italian menu are out and Spanish tapas meant for sharing are in. You might encounter cheese and charcuterie boards, stuffed olives, bacon-wrapped dates, creamy chicken fritters and seared octopus with fingerling potatoes.
