Los Angeles Eatery Tesse Makes Waves With Decor

Stunning is all we can say when we are asked about the project that has helped the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles glean a little of its shine back.  Designed by Alexis Readinger of Preen, Inc.

Tesse, whose name is from the French word délicatesse, is a high-end yet relaxed space that blends modern comfort with the style and soul of reclaimed teak that are lining the ceilings of the main floor. The earthy space on the Sunset Strip clocks in at 6000 square feet of peaceful serenity.

Customers walking into the sanctuary off the strip first will notice the clean lines throughout the restaurant and bar area. A warm  feeling follows as the teak lined bar catches the eye upon entering the space.

“There’s a heavy futuristic slant with a floating cork & teak ceiling that gives the large room a more intimate feel.”

“Tesse is a French restaurant featuring the dynamic, continental-inspired cuisine of Chef Raphael Francois and Pastry Chef Sally Camacho Mueller, served in a chic dining room on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of West Hollywood. An extensive wine program from Jordan Ogron is supplemented by Boutellier, an exclusive wine store adjacent to the restaurant. A French-leaning craft cocktail program designed by Nick Meyer and Julian Cox is offered at the bar.”

“The restaurant’s name is a contraction of the French delicatesse, meaning ‘delicacy’ or ‘thoughtfulness’ — it’s also used across France as a colloquial term for charcuterie. And while the iconic pâtés, terrines, rillettes and saucisses of his homeland are central to the menu, Chef Raphael also features a broad and finessed take on French classics, with meats and fish prepared on the wood-fired hearth that anchors the kitchen and lighter fare inspired by near-daily trips to LA’s outstanding Farmers Markets.”

“Tesse’s menu is designed with wine in mind. The food pairs beautifully with a vast, interactive wine program designed by Jordan Ogron, which features nearly thirty wines by the glass and a list of more than three thousand selections. For those who prefer something a bit stronger, the craft cocktail program was designed by Nick Meyer and Julian Cox, the duo behind many of the most notable bar programs in Los Angeles.”
