Pulling from the warmth and striking flavors of Baja California, new restaurant The Hideaway is set to open during the first week of August.
Backed by investors that include Ryan Phillipe and Evan Ross, the Mexican steakhouse includes a cozy dining space, a luxe jewel box bar and expansive patio. Such a layout warrants large gatherings for celebrations, special occasions and food-fueled camaraderie. Fittingly enough, The Hideaway pays homage to ‘70s Baja California and imbues a clubby and surprising, yet comfortable spirit.
From Jeffrey Best, the Rodeo Drive restaurant will present a market-driven menu helmed by chefs Alex Moreno and Viet Pham. Small bites include beef tartare, tuna tartare and Alaskan king crab, while larger plates range from whole fresh fish to hand-selected beef and pork.
To complement the surf and turf-centered dishes, Julian Cox developed a number of handmade cocktails, such as the house margarita, which is made of a blend of blanco and reposado tequilas and fresh, house-blended sweet and sour juices. To round out bar offerings, general manager Bart Clemmer is spearheading the wine program that features selections from around the world and, most notably, bottles from California’s best wineries.
Once opened, The Hideaway will be open 11 a.m. to midnight daily with bar hours extending until 2 a.m. from Wednesday to Saturday and until midnight on Sunday to Tuesday.
Guests will be transported from Beverly Hills opulence and into a spirited, welcoming space upon entering The Hideaway. The restaurant interiors are made of rustic tile, vintage wood and faded stucco to call back to the old-school dining establishment of decades’ past in both Baja and Southern California, offering diners a decidedly Angeleno experience that is rounded out by the Mexican-imported, custom made Talavera stoneware used for tableware and tiles.
