Gesso, West Hollywood, CA

Gesso Restaurant Review

: Restaurateur Paul Hibler (Superba Food + Bread, Pitfire Artisan Pizza) is behind Gesso, a casual restaurant on Fairfax Avenue. Chef Chris Ono (Eleven Madison Park, Esters Wine Shop & Bar) presents contemporary California cooking. The all-day menu includes breakfast fare (potato leek frittata, gravlax on a bialy), Jidori chicken nuggets and a cheeseburger topped with grilled onions and Thousand Island dressing, as well as several pizzas (starting at 11 a.m.). Breakfast and lunch are counter-service, with full-service dinner and craft cocktails from 5 p.m. on.
