This winter, Paley, a new restaurant from Plan Do See group debuts in the heart of Hollywood, California, which has been undergoing a neighborhood renaissance. The restaurant is the first West Coast opening from the global hospitality group, and will open in partnership with NeueHouse, the new cultural center and co-working space that originated in New York City and has just opened its second location in Los Angeles.
Located in the iconic 1930s building and former home of CBS, Paley is named in celebration of the artistic and innovative era shaped by Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) CEO and progressive visionary William S. Paley and his wife, Babe Paley. The menu, by chef Greg Bernhardt (Church & State) is a dynamic take on California cuisine.
Situated across the NeueHouse courtyard, the 245-seat restaurant features an expansive glass wall and outdoor patio offering guests a direct view into the sculpture plaza where six Dustin Yellin “psychogeographies” — glass and stainless-steel-encased collages that resemble human forms — are on display.
With Paley, Plan Do See brings its signature Japanese principal of Omotenashi — selfless service with a spirit of warmth and respect — to California, joining with NeueHouse to play a role in Hollywood’s renaissance and drawing creatives together, daily.
“We are excited to collaborate with NeueHouse on the vision for Paley,” says Hiro Nishida, president of Plan Do See America. “Plan Do See and NeueHouse are two companies renowned for bringing together talent, and Paley will be a reflection of our shared enthusiasm for the vibrant culinary, artistic, and cultural epicenter that Los Angeles is today.”
Paley is slated to open in early 2016.
