Buzz From the Cafeteria

Eating at the David Myers Group’s two newly opened restaurants will require plane tickets and a passport—our bags are packed.

The guy behind local brasserie favorite Comme Ça has taken his show overseas. And from the looks of the menus at the two debuts, David Myers Café and SOLA, they’ve brought a little bit of home with them. The first is a zen 40-seater café featuring California-inspired dishes with Japanese flourishes (Potato & Miso Soup, Sake & Harissa Black Cod) as well as some red, white, and blue ambassadors (The Comme ÇaBurger, BLT). On the patisserie end, SOLA takes the Cal-Japanese collabo to sweeter destinations with items like the Yuzu Mochi Parfait and the Buddah Fruit and Plum Buckwheat Crepe. 

“I have been searching for years for the perfect opportunity to open in Tokyo,” says chef/owner David Myers in a release. “It’s been a dream of mine to bring California cuisine to the world stage and I am thrilled to be amongst the world’s most inspiring chefs in an incredibly renowned location.”

Both new ventures are located at the ritzy Mitsukoshi Ginza shopping center.

And for those mourning the recent closure of Sona, plans for a new restaurant in Hollywood are already in the works. The LA Times reports the group has bought a space at the Equitable Building on Hollywood and Vine. It’s expected to open next year.
