Alice Eatery at 1 Hotel West Hollywood

The 1 Hotel West Hollywood is now open on Sunset Blvd, a rebrand of the previous Jeremy Hotel, and with it comes new restaurants! Alice Eatery is an all-day restaurant and marketplace concept run by The h.wood Group at the 1 Hotel.

The food and cocktails at Alice Eatery are from Chef Lord Maynard Llera and bar director Justin Campbell from The h.wood Group while the chef de cuisine overseeing the day to day operation is Broken Spanish alum, Geter Atienza.

The menu is French American. Since 1 Hotel is an eco-friendly luxury hotel brand, the restaurants of course also use locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. During my recent visit I tried the Grilled calamari, cucumber, green apple, red bell pepper, green papaya ($17)

This was a nice appetizer on the lighter salad - basically a salad with grilled calamari which had a great texture.

On the heavier end of the appetizer is the Beef tartare with smoked egg yolk, violet mustard, tomato ($24)

The cocktails at Alice are named after LA neighborhoods, and worth a try. I knew I had to get this drink when I saw corn in the ingredient list: Brentwood (Virginia black whiskey, amaro di Angostura, charred white corn, lemon, egg white - $16)

This was a nice well balanced sour with a hint of sweet corn.

I got my vitamin A with the Little Tokyo (Toki whiskey, Amaro Montenegro, carrot, ginger, lemon - $16)

My friend ordered the Roasted half chicken, spring pea panzanella, radish sprouts, red onion, pea tendrils ($26)
Alice Eatery
I normally don't order chicken because I'm not a big fan of white meat, but I have to say this chicken was very good - just look at that skin!

Rib eye with chimichurri ($62) Alice Eatery
Very well prepared rib eye (medium rare)

For dessert I ordered the Meringue with mango and passionfruit ($11)

This was slightly richer than I expected based on the description but I enjoyed the tropical flavors.

My friend had an order of the assorted cookies, served warm! I like my fancy desserts but warm, fresh cookies also just hit the spot ...

Alice Eatery is a nice option to have on the Sunset Strip, whether you're a hotel guest or not. It's relaxed. They keep the food menu overall very approachable for hotel guests, but still interesting enough for local foodies. On top of that, they have nice cocktails and a well-priced beer list.

Alice serves food all day from breakfast to dinner. They also have grab-and-go options at the attached marketplace.
