Tucked away on Sunset Boulevard, where places like the Chateau Marmont and the Whisky A Go Go are neighbors, the Eveleigh restaurant can feel like – and get away with – being the family home on frat row. First built as an orchard house in 1923, the homespun quality of the property is currently embraced by dark-wooded décor, a shaded back patio, and an herb and vegetable garden that supports the kitchen. Even the few steps from the street into the front terrace supply an instant change in perspective.
But aside from being a figurative breath of fresh air, the Eveleigh is a literal place to recharge. The menu molds to the market, and the staff works diligently to prepare locally sourced food as much as possible. Whether it’s organic vegetables or fresh seafood, small-batch wines or house-made infusions, the food evolves so that the quality of a Sunday brunch or a late-night dinner can stay the same.
