What is it you’re looking for when you search for a restaurant to catch up with friends? Maybe it is a dynamic menu, a creative aesthetic, a serene ambiance, or is it marvelous customer service?
Well, in West Hollywood, you will find that Norah has it all and more. The project is airy and warm, well designed by Thomas Schoos in the former Don’t Tell Mama nightclub. From the moment you step through the doors, you’re taken back by a beautifully curated, industrial-chic space.
Rohan Talwar and Chef Mike Williams have created a fantastic restaurant with an exciting atmosphere. Chef Mike focuses on innovating and refining flavors of Los Angeles with local ingredients sourced from local farmer’s markets on the weekends.
The brunch, dinner and tasting menus are all complemented by a selection of old leanings wines and artistic cocktails. With an emphasis of putting the guest first, Norah provides guests with an unforgettable elevated dining experience that leaves you feeling relaxed and satisfied.
Taking advantage of the wood-burning grill, Norah makes everything in-house and allows guests to enjoy a traditional meal from the menu, or choose to experience the tasting menu, which features bites of Norah’s best selections, with the choice to add a curated wine pairing.
Dishes from the dinner tasting menu include:
American Wagyu Zabuton 8oz, crispy fingerlings, black garlic chili oil
Cast-Iron Cornbread with rosemary-honey butter (my favorite)
This is Norah’s most famous and sought-after dish. This cornbread is so light, sweet, smooth, buttery and incredibly fresh. The rosemary-honey butter creates the most unforgettable marriage of flavors.
Uni Butter Poached Shrimp with smoked tomatoes, scallions, and toast (also a favorite!)
The sauce is addictively buttery and I mopped the plate with the toast!
Roots & Burrata baby carrots, beets, pistachio, spiced honey
Black Truffle Potato Gnocchi truffle conserva, shaved black truffle
There are so many dishes and cocktails to come back for. Norah is worth your visit.
Norah opens for dinner tonight and reservations can be made on OpenTable.
