Getting to sample some of the menu from the new restaurant Tuck Room Tavern was a wonderful experience, and getting to meet the woman who created it was even better.
Sherry Yard, famous for her years as pastry chef and partner to Wolfgang Puck, is a lovely, down-to-earth person, with an easy smile and warm, open nature that makes you feel welcome. The design of Tuck Room Tavern is also warm and inviting, with whimsical decorative touches that are sure to delight guests, and a terrific menu of food and beverages.
iPic, Westwood’s luxury theater known for its smaller screening rooms, comfy chairs, tables and complete food and beverage service, has partnered with three-time James Beard Award winning chef Yard as their SVP of Culinary Brand Development.
The restaurant features remarkable works by Mike Stilkey, an American artist based in LA renowned for his book sculpture art. Stilkey is the only artist in the world to hand paint donated or discarded library books that would otherwise not be able to be recycled to use as his canvas.
John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Elisabeth Rohm, Alana Hadid, Angelique Rivera, Brett Davern, Carson Dean, Griffin Freeman, Heather McDonald, Jillian Rose Reed, Liza Koshy, Marty Shannon, and Norman Towns were among Hollywood’s elite who celebrated The Tuck Room Tavern Grand Opening in Los Angeles.
Guests enjoyed handcrafted signature cocktails from Corporate Sommelier/Executive Bartender Adam Seger, as well as delectable passed hors d’oeuvres from Sherry Yard. The menu featured Mac & Cheese “Fries,” Reuben Croquettes, and Brioche-Crusted Crab Cakes, amongst others.
One of Seger’s specialty cocktail creations, The Heisenberg, is created by pouring tequila through a three-tiered spirit diffusion system containing cherries, nectarines and peaches.
