Olivetta, created by Matt and Marissa Hermer and helmed by Executive Chef Michael Fiorelli, is a coastal European restaurant open for fine dining and late night cocktails.
Tucked away on WeHo's Restaurant Row, the incredibly stylish 150 seat bungalow boasts an atmosphere of carefree sophistication by combining the whimsical elegance of the western Mediterranean with the theatrical exuberance of West Hollywood.
By utilizing old-world ingredients and styles of preparation, Chef Fiorelli has drawn inspiration from the coastal classics of Italy, Greece, France and Spain to create a menu of contemporary dishes with a Californian sensibility. The menu captures the spirit of being on holiday while fully celebrating the exquisite locally sourced ingredients found here at home.
The bar program, curated by award winning mixologist Melina Meza, pairs familiar favorites with unique ingredients to create cocktails such as a Dirty Martini made with bleu cheese infused dry vermouth, Kalamata olive brine, and a garnish of gorgonzola stuffed Castelvetrano olives as well as original creations such as a Tequila based cocktail made with elderflower, rainbow carrot, jasmine honey, Italian amaro and fresh lime. These elevated and complex flavors provide the perfect complement to Chef Fiorelli’s Mediterranean menu.
The wine program, created by preeminent Sommelier Eric Railsback, represents regions from around the globe but focuses on sourcing from lesser known boutique wineries and small growers who are farming impeccably and working with great terroir. From bright, fresh, natural wines and popular favorites to back vintage burgundy and rare gems from the Old World, as well as highlights from the Hermer’s own collection, there is something for every palate on our list.
