There's No Place Like…
The sense of nostalgia that UK reggae star Tony Gad felt for the days when nothing was grander than grabbing a steak and a show with your sweetheart resulted in the launch of his Beverly Hills supper club H.O.M.E this past November. Standing for House of Music & Entertainment, H.O.M.E harks back to a simpler time, with robust, Americana-fusion fare that’s served up minus modern-day faff but with a side of sultry live music 7 days a week.
With a neat fitout of grey marble, dark woods and white tablecloths, plus a stage draped with plush red curtains sitting front and centre, H.O.M.E looks every inch the classic jazz club – a good thing since its rotating calendar of multi-genre artists is its trump card. But that’s not to suggest the restaurant doesn't pack a fair punch in its own right. Starters like chilled Maine lobster and slow-braised pork belly play opening act to a main-event offering of solid seafood and meat dishes including black lime-seared day boat scallops and Colorado rack of lamb with sour cherry-mint reduction. Add in an international wine list and an alfresco patio for ambient, warmer-month trysts, and you’ve got everything you need for a sell-out performance.
