WOOD AND VINE
- Story / Photos By PAIGE PETRONE
Heading to the Pantages theatre for a show anytime soon? Be sure to plan a visit to Wood and Vine for an amazing pre-theatre dining experience. Wood and Vine is located directly across the street from the legendary Hollywood theatre so you can park only one! This restaurant is special with a dark indoor bar ambiance and an outside patio that transports you to an outdoor loft in Brooklyn, New York. The space is chic and hip with its tranquil vibe in the heart of bustling Hollywood.
The bar offers an extensive and very impressive list of fabulous cocktails and fine wines. The menu includes some fun playful breakfast themed items, featuring their take on Chicken-n-Waffles, Shrimp-n-Grits, and Scotch Eggs. There’s also a clever range of bites and shareable choices such as Shells and Cheese (smothered in aged cheddar and topped with Cheez-its!), Pork Shanks (smoked, braised, fried with spicy honey), Beef Carpaccio (paper thin tenderloin with Reggiano and champagne vinaigrette topped with pistachio and capers), Spicy Tuna Crudo (Ahi with chili and fermented garlic on a bed of marinated avocado), Crispy Brussells (with sherry-dijon vinaigrette), and Hand-punched French Fries (served with horseradish aioli and house ketchup).
Save room for dessert as they offer more tasty treats. Try the Sour Cream Donut Holes and their signature Butterscotch with maple ice cream! Need I say more? They are ridiculously delicious!
Wood and Vine is located at 6280 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood.
