Chef Chat: An Informal Interview with Executive Chef Sascha Lyon
LAist catches Executive Chef Sascha Lyon in the kitchen at Delphine in the new W Hotelon Hollywood Boulevard. Lyon comes to LA with a pedigree, previously of Balthazar, Pastis and his own New York restaurant, Sascha. He brings with him bold flavors from the Mediterranean, specifically the South of France.
His goal is to offer affordable and accessable seafood in a non-seafood restaurant. So no captain's wheels, glass floats or netting on the walls. The decor is a little more Barbarella meets a millionaire (but cheats on him with Moondoggie.) The chef is all about consistency in the food while promoting a good time, and the W is definitely all about a good time. The joint was jumping on a Thursday night, and a number of partiers were enjoying pissaladiare and cocktails at Station, the comfortable patio area. The perfect place for a cuddle.
