Enjoy NoHo This New Year’s Eve

Written by

Don’t stay in this New Year’s, Stay in NoHo

We all know the dreaded question this time of year: “So what are you doing for New Year’s Eve?” There’s always that pressure to have fun on the last night of the year. But this New Year's, you actually can in North Hollywood.  The Federal Bar and Bow & Truss are whipping up some delish dishes, yummy libations, a night of dancing and a chill atmosphere, right here in NoHo. Take a look at what our pals are putting together for us this New Year’s.

The Federal

The Federal Bar North Hollywood (5303 Lankershim Blvd. NoHo) will host a stellar evening of dinner and dancing. If you’ve never been to this NoHo staple, you need to go for this special evening. You’ll find the atmosphere very NoHo – easy going, eclectic and just plain fun. Looking at their dinner menu, we’re dying over the Manchego fondue.

General manager Steve Simon says, “We’re hosting an exciting night of dancing, DJ and cocktails. For $75, guests will get a special four-course dinner, tax and tip included, entrance to the club ($25 value), beer or wine ($8-10 value) and champagne at midnight. It’s a great way to ring in the New Year.”

Step into the NEW Eclectic Restaurant

Written by

The Eclectic Has Great New Owners

the eclectic noho We would like the NoHo Arts District and our East Valley neighbors to meet Laura and Don Adams, the new owners of North Hollywood’s The Eclectic Restaurant. Laura and Don are the type of owners we want in the district - they love NoHo and want to do their part to make it even better by continuing the Eclectic tradition – an eclectic, family owned restaurant serving quality food in a warm atmosphere in L.A.’s all inclusive arts district. The NoHo Arts District dot Com team is thrilled that one of the original restaurants that was brave enough to make the arts district their home some 20+ years ago is still here for us to enjoy. We are glad to have chatted with Laura about the yummy changes to their menu and why the chose the NoHo Arts District.

Why did you decide to buy the Eclectic?
We loved the history of the Eclectic. With 22 years of success, we felt it was a great opportunity for us to nurture and to continue to grow this business. We also have enjoyed the NoHo neighborhood and felt it was a perfect fit for our vision of a fine dining restaurant with an exciting and welcoming atmosphere. There is a great vibe of artistic theater, dance, fashion, and music in the NoHo Arts District that The Eclectic intends on supporting and nurturing with creative dishes, innovative flavors in both our food and beverage platforms, originality and great service!

Have you worked in other restaurant?
We both began our careers in the restaurant industry in our high-school years - so pretty much our entire lives. I started out in marketing and PR for RUI and found a love for private events and eventually ran one of the premiere catering businesses in Seattle, WA. Don was a top executive for a large restaurant company whose headquarters are based in Seattle, WA. After many years of running restaurants Don was promoted and ultimately became the Chief Concept Officer for Restaurants Unlimited. For 17 years Don created, designed, built and opened new concepts for the company which successfully runs 57 restaurants nation wide. He is a trained and certified Sommelier. He has traveled to the Napa Valley Region, Chili, France, Italy and Germany blending wines with some of the top wine producers in the world creating blends that were paired with our menus for his former company. Since we started at The Eclectic Don has been actively working to create a world class wine list for our guests to enjoy. He is adding some great wines with value that will compliment our menu, specifically supporting local wineries in the central coast.

What changes do you plan on implementing?
The most important thing to us when taking over The Eclectic was to ensure that the current guests were well taken care of so we didn't want to rush into changing anything before getting to know the restaurant, the guest and neighborhood. The most popular items that existed in the past are still a part of our current menu. What we have done to date is improve the over all food quality with fresh, seasonal, local ingredients and also placing some of our favorite recipes onto our menus. We continue to strive for the highest quality at a great value for our guests. We are really proud of our handcrafted cocktail menu, which rivals top bars in any city and this is the feedback we are getting from our guests which is fantastic to hear. Please come check it out if you haven't!

We have also made some minor changes to the décor of the restaurant, restrooms and patio. We are planning on new art work, plate ware, signage and more interior remodeling which we are very excited about.

What are some of your favorite menu items?
Hmmm - there are many that come to mind. On the top of my list (Laura) is the Capellini Pomodoro with sautéed chicken, Rigatoni Bolognese and the Kobe sliders. Don's is the Roasted Beet Salad with the new addition of the Soledad Farms organic goat cheese, the Braised Short Ribs & the Rigatoni Bolognese. We never say no to the decadent Chocolate Brownie topped with warm caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and vanilla bean ice cream!

Tell us about Happy Hour.
We offer a wonderful happy hour Mon - Friday from 3:00 - 6:00 pm and a late night happy hour Sun - Thursday from 8:30 - close. We have a nice assortment of appetizers (yes our kobe sliders are available) and pizza starting at $4.00 - $8.00, all of our specialty handcrafted cocktails $6.00, all draft beers $5.00, house wines $5.00 and well drinks - $4.00.

"We feel very fortunate and blessed to be serving the NoHo neighborhood at The Eclectic,” beams Laura. “We have met so many wonderful new people and guests here and look forward to meeting and serving many more."
