Chef's Not Here
Where we've featured it
What It Is: A rooftop tapas restaurant in West Hollywood
Perfect For: First/Early In The Game Dates, Outdoor/Patio Situation
Chef’s Not Here is a new tapas restaurant on a rooftop in West Hollywood, and after a recent visit, our biggest takeaway is that the space is beautiful. If you want to sit on a rooftop and drink sangria and stare at the Hollywood Hills, go there right now. But as far as the food goes, Chef’s Not Here is inconsistent - we wouldn’t recommend you go to this place for a full meal, at least not yet. Most of the smaller tapas plates and the desserts are good, but the bigger plates (pasta, lamb) are bland and forgettable.
Verdict: An absolutely beautiful rooftop restaurant, but the food isn’t good enough for this place to make the Hit List yet.
