The Boxwood at The London West Hollywood is a hidden gem right in the heart of West Hollywood at The London. The elegant restaurant is the perfect setting for date night, a girl’s night out, catching up with a friend in an intimate setting, or enjoy cocktails in the beautiful London Bar.
With a decor of marble, gold fixtures, cream colored booths, and black accents, The Boxwood serves up something for everyone to enjoy. They have a small menu that packs a lot of flavor with a selection of delicious dishes. We started with the Charcoal Grilled Spanish Octopus, and a few selections from their robata bar including the Bass with Sweet Chili, Wagyu beef with Soy-Mirin, and the (must get) Eggplant with Miso. The raw selection and robata bar were such an unexpected surprise, but probably our favorite area of the menu.
When I am not having a cheat day, I eat pretty simply and strictly, which is why I loved The Boxwood’s simply prepared section. While, Tyler munched on Spagheti all’ Amatriciana and Black Angus Filet, I was able to choose a protein and a sauce to have it cooked anyway I preferred. I ordered up huge shrimp with a red wine sauce and a side of the charred broccolini. It was my perfect meal, along with bites of Tyler’s dishes. For dessert, Tyler ordered up the donuts which came with a few dipping sauces…out of this world!
