Hollywood Heights Hotel Invites Diners to Hideout
Yesterday we told you all about the changes at the Hollywood Heights Hotel, and today we’ll be dishing, so to speak, on the meal we had at the new restaurant there, The Hideout.
The Hideout recently opened on June 24, after the renovation of the hotel was almost complete, and the new menu is skewed towards updated comfort food. That means dishes like creamy four-cheese mac ’n cheese, Maryland crab cakes with cole slaw, a huge rib-eye with mushrooms and fries, and starters like seared ahi tuna with avocado and arugula on house-made tortillas.
The menu might not be the most risqué in town, but for this part of Hollywood, the reasonable prices are a pretty good deal, the food is fresh, and the portions are generous.
The restaurant itself is looking pretty good these days too, thanks to its share of the renovation. The floors are dark hardwood, the chairs and booths are cool white leather, and there are trippy green glass fixtures sprinkled here and there throughout the space.
There’s also a little bar up front, and an outdoor patio screened off from the noise of Highland Avenue where the restaurant will soon be offering drinks specials on signature cocktails like the “Walk of Fame Martini” and the pineapple and cinnamon margarita to entice customers before and after nearby Hollywood Bowl shows.
Our one caveat: the only parking option is valet (this is L.A. after all!), so be sure to get your ticket validated or you could be stuck with over $20 in fees.
