Located inside the legendary Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood, Cavatina is home to James Beard award-winning Chef Michael Schlow’s first West Coast endeavor. The cuisine showcases local California product throughout dishes of simple yet bold tastes with creative presentations and seasonal ingredients prepared by Executive Chef Chris Turano. The restaurant embodies Sunset Marquis’ casual, relaxed vibe and atmosphere, and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. One of their new popular seafood menu items is the shrimp carpaccio prepared with the lardo melted to perfection on crostini. Raw spot prawns are flash marinated with yuzu juice, togarashi and olive oil and then placed atop the crostini and garnished with toasted pine nuts, basil, sea salt and olive oil.
Fresh-from-the-oven cookies spotted with sweet squares of chocolate get a dusting of sea salt. The finishing touch helps amplify the chocolate’s deeper flavors while taking the edge off the sugar rush. To help wash down the treats, they arrive with a petite pitcher of cold milk.
