As December comes to a close, it is time to begin planning Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve dinner plans. Executive Chef Dakota Weiss of NINETHIRTY Restaurant at W Los Angeles – Westwood has the perfect alternative for hotel guests and Los Angeles locals looking to stay out of the kitchen this holiday season.
On Christmas Eve, patrons will have chance to enjoy all of Dakota’s signature dinner dishes, such as Fall Squash and Burrata ($13), Brentwood Corn Gratin with Andouille Sausage and Oregano ($10), and “Drunk Mussels” – a combination of Washington State black mussels, white wine, chipotle, hominy and grilled flat bread ($15 small, $26 large). However, on Christmas Eve, Chef Dakota will bring special, more holiday-traditional dishes to the table such as Roasted Prime Rib with Wild Rice Bread Pudding, truffled haricot vert and Cabernet Jus ($48). This dish will ONLY be offered on Christmas Eve!
Additionally, NINETHIRTY will offer a Christmas Eve Prix Fixe Menu for $68 per person. The three course meal will include Porcini Mushroom Bisque with Meyer Lemon Oil and Brioche Crumbs, to begin. The decadence continues with a second course of Smoked Juniper Roasted Elk Tenderloin with Celeriac, Brown Butter Puree and Pickled Blackberries. Finally, Christmas Eve would not be complete without a fantastic dessert, and Dakota Weiss has created just that with a Dark Chocolate Ganache Pie with Salted Caramel Mousse and Candied Clementines.
