WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA — Amidst widespread restaurant and bar closures across Los Angeles during the coronavirus pandemic, West Hollywood will be graced with two new dining options this fall. The Pendry West Hollywood will be home to Ospero and Merois, both of which will be operated by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.
Ospero will feature an easy going atmosphere that caters to everyone, featuring breakfast classics, vegan dishes and a wood-burning pizza oven. Located on the ground floor, the restaurant will feature both indoor dining and an al fresco terrace.
Merois will inhabit the eleventh floor of the tower, allowing for sweeping views of Downtown, Sunset Boulevard and more landmarks. The restaurant will fuse together Japanese, Southeast Asian, and French/California cuisine, and feature some of Puck's most renowned dishes.
Byron Puck, Wolfgang's son and current manager of Spago, will oversee the two restaurants.
"A lot of people ask me why I need another restaurant," Puck told the Los Angeles Times. "The good thing is, I don’t need it. I want it. I love to do it."
Ospero and Merois will be Wolfgang Puck's sixth and seventh restaurants in Los Angeles. Puck also owns CUT and Spago in Beverly Hills, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at L.A Live, Chinois in Santa Monica, and Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air.
Both Ospero and Merois are expected to open later this year.
