The rooftop of the W Hollywood has long been known for its skyline views, sophisticated décor, and sexy ambiance. Thanks to the arrival of the world- renowned Gastro Garage, the W is now also known for its one of a kind pop-up culinary experience. Welcome to Torched, the Gastro Garage’s fiery immersive 8-course dinner, guaranteed to blow your mind.
From the moment you step off the private elevator onto the rooftop, you’re transported to a drive-through auto service bay, complete with oil drums, hubcaps, vintage motorcycles and rock ‘n’ roll music. Pull over to your first stop and enjoy a welcome cocktail and appetizer while you meet your personal Gastro Mechanic. After a brief introduction you are escorted to your table where you will share in a welcome toast of Bullet Bourbon.
Now that you’ve pulled up to the main event, sit back and prepare to be wowed as the Gastro Mechanics start the show. With the help of blow torches and molecular gastronomy, watch as the Mechanics deconstruct classic dishes and reconstruct them into signature “Tanks,” (savory sliders made from delicious brioche donuts, skewers, sides and more). Prepare to indulge in: salmon, steak, pizza, maple glazed carrots and much more! Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available with advance notice.
Dinner may be over but it’s now time to make your way across the pool to your private cabana. Here your personal Mechanic will prepare and serve you two decadent desserts. Make sure to try the Princess Buttercup – double chocolate foam, torched sweet peanut puree, a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup and nut butter powder served on a warm brioche donut.
After a year of quarantine and lockdowns, the Gastro Garage is the perfect remedy for cabin fever. And it goes both ways. The Mechanics are just as thrilled to see you as you are to see them, “We are excited to bring some culinary fun back to the community after months of eating in and have created a menu for the W Hollywood that no one has experienced or tasted before,” said co-founder Adam Manacker.
