Within the last year, the messy intersection of San Vicente, La Cienega and Burton Way on the edge of Beverly Hills gained a shiny, futuristic high-rise of luxury apartments: 8500 Burton Way. Softening the blow to the neighborhood is a new location of The Larder, the marketplace-cafe concept from team A.O.C.: Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne.
Patterned after The Larder at Tavern—which was the first location of this casual eatery—The Larder at Burton Way offers indoor and outdoor seating, breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, as well as a marketplace that sells preserves, pastries and wines hand-picked by Ms. Styne, a sommelier for the group.
Breakfast, which will be served Monday through Friday starting at 8:00 a.m., includes freshly baked pastries and made-to-order offerings like challah French toast with Vermont maple syrup and chorizo and eggs with soffrito, queso iberico and fried potatoes. Brunch, available on Saturdays and Sundays includes all of the breakfast menu items in addition to select sandwiches, soups, and salads from the weekday lunch menu.
The Larder's lunch menu includes an extensive selection of sandwiches: there's a section on on ficelles, those long, thin baguette; burgers, including a triple-pork option with manchego; and a build-your-own sandwich option. Vegetable and grain-based sides are available for dine-in or take-out. The dinner menu incorporates the heartiest of sandwiches, salads and burgers in addition to main courses like bucatini with lamb meatballs, slow-cooked pork shoulder and grilled steak frites. It's all great with a glass of wine from the approachable list of mostly Californian varietals.
Open Monday, April 22, those who live in the building have one more thing to look forward to: in-room delivery from their new personal Larder.
