After months of anticipation, the old Au Fudge space on Melrose and Doheny has finally revealed a stunning new space by restauranteurs Matt and Marisa Hermer, who also own The Draycott in Pacific Palisades.
The Hermer’s once again enlisted the talents of Tom Parker from Fettle (who also designed the Palisades eatery and the Hammer museum café), for the interiors spanning over four distinct areas. The front patio has been enclosed – but can still slide open to the street during warmer months, enshrouded with greenery and rotating art from Hauser & Wirth in the Arts District. There is a cozy front bar near the hostess station and a main dining area with cozy corner banquettes and another bar-lounge area.
“When we moved to Los Angeles three years ago, we missed our favorite London haunts where there was a heartbeat to the room, with luxurious interiors, excellent service, incredible food and cocktails – where we would bump into friends and meet new ones,” Marissa Hermer told the Courier. “We wanted to create a glamorous comfortable home for us and our friends to meet for early evening cocktails, dinners, late night secrets and shenanigans.”
