GC Marketplace

Chef and Event Producer Gary Arabia unveils GC Marketplace (3315 Cahuenga Blvd., Los Angeles, CA) on Monday. This multi-concept culinary spot brings together Arabia’s talent for entertaining and artisanal ingredients for you to eating in, grab-and-go or bring home to enjoy with friends and family. With all food made in-house, GC Marketplace offers a series of vignettes where you will find everything from a French style boulangerie, house-made pizza and sandwiches, a cheese and charcuterie counter, premium blend coffee,  and a retail wine space.

Designed by Jennifer Charleston of Twenty7 Design, GC Marketplace is a modern take on the old Hollywood Oak-Crest Market. The building, which dates back to the 1930’s, houses 22-foot tall vaulted lamella ceilings, that are illuminated by the neon Oak Crest Market sign. The 300-bottle wine wall anchors the wine bar while wrap-around counters highlight the individual vignettes. A custom wood burning oven, state of the art rotisserie, grab-and-go case and a private 12-seat Chef’s Table round out the experience of the Marketplace.

In partnership with Executive Chef James Dame and Executive Pastry Chef Kelly Dame, Arabia has crafted the menu at GC Marketplace to include breakfast, salads, pizza, piadini, sandwiches and a bar menu. Breakfast highlights include Pork Belly Benedict with bacon hollandaise and onion confit; and Challah French Toast with cinnamon apples. A La Minute choices range from Crab & Truffle Risotto to Thai Beef Salad with cucumber, red onion, tomato, bean sprouts and basil in a lime-chili dressing. Wood-oven specialties include the Sausage & Mushroom Pizza with house-made fennel sausage, mushrooms, mozzarella and tomato sauce; and the Cured Ham Piadini with shaved Parmesan, truffle oil and arugula. Burgers and sandwiches include The Banh Mi with spicy chicken, pickled vegetables and Sriracha spread. The Bar Menu features cheeses and charcuterie; house-cured salmon pastrami; deviled eggs; and crispy calamari, while weekly family meals include Porchetta with vegetables, salad and dessert.

The 12 seat Chef’s Table, which is tucked away inside the kitchen, gives you an exclusive and one of a kind dining experience. GC Marketplace also features a wine bar and retail space offering small production wines from around the world.  The retail wine section has over 300 bottles for sale and the wine bar offers 12 wines on tap by the glass in addition to champagne, craft brews, and hard ciders. For the morning rush, the bar turns into coffee central and GC Marketplace’s coffee is a proprietary branded blend in partnership with intazza, an artisanal roaster in Temecula, CA.

Open Monday-Friday, 6:30 am-10 pm, and Saturday & Sunday, 7 am-10 pm.
