Palisades Restaurant Offering Unique Cheese

Westside Dining Scene December 9, 2021

Palisades Restaurant offers interesting cheese. According to their Instagram page, The Draycott is currently offering a very intriguing cheddar cheese as part of the restaurant’s rotating cheese board. Roelli Cheese Haus in Wisconsin makes Red Rock Cheddar because Chris Roelli, a fourth generation cheesemaker, heard that niche customers would pay more for a cheddar that was flawed by exposure to blue mold. Roelli inoculated some of his cheddar cheese blocks with penicillium roqueforti, which is the classic bleu cheese mold of Roquefort cheese fame. Thus Red Rock Cheddar was born and it has both the cheddar nuttiness and creamy but firm texture and the tangy edge of Roquefort cheese. The cheese’s visual appeal is only enhanced by the contrast between the traditional orange color of the cheddar and the blue veins of the Roquefort mold. Red Rock is available right now at The Draycott with a second cheese selection as part of the cheese board, but hurry because the restaurant frequently rotates the cheese selections that it has available.

Westwood Chinese Restaurant Closes

Dun Huang, a northwest Chinese restaurant that has its home base in New York City, was reportedly opening a new site in Westwood at 1081 Gayley Avenue, but there is now a space available for lease sign on the property without the restaurant ever opening according to Toddrickallen.com who also reported on the potential opening of the restaurant in June of 2020. Apparently, the inside of the proposed restaurant looks like no one has been in there for a long time and the interior has been ripped out according to Toddrickallen.com. Will the Dun Huang in Rowland Heights remain the only West Coast branch? The answer to that question remains to be determined.

CBD Restaurant Coming to Santa Monica

Chef Chris Sayegh, the owner of The Herbal Chef culinary platform that “creates intriguing and delectable food first and infuses it with cannabis second.” will be opening a bar called Nostalgia on 1326 Pico Blvd that will transition into a full restaurant in January of 2022 as reported by What Now Los Angeles. In keeping with the theme of nostalgia, the bar will serve CBD infused alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages along with food items that harken back from the 1970s to 2000s. CBD infused drinks are legal again since the passage of Assembly Bill 45 in October which made these drinks legal again in the state. Once the full restaurant opens, it will work with a seasonal menu that includes drinks such as boozy Otter Pops and Capri Suns and lobster rolls topped with caviar and branzino fish and chips according to What Now Los Angeles. None of the food will be CBD infused, but Chef Sayegh will hold private dinners for $295 each for diners who would like to indulge. Sayegh has had experience in many different kitchens before opening The Herbal Chef, the most notable was working under Chef Josiah Citrin at Melisse, the Michelin starred restaurant.
