Paley is a tribute. A tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood, located on Columbia Square right across from NeueHouse. Its name is a respectful nod to William S. Paley, founder of the Columbia Broadcasting System, better known today as CBS. A tribute to California as well, with a simple menu, local ingredients and ‘effortless chic’ dishes. Teutonic chef Greg Bernhardt oversees this open kitchen — you might have already seen him at Church & State, or at a Ludo Bites pop-up if you were one of the lucky fews. His Japanese-inspired crudos are perfect for a light dinner: hamachi with shaved fennel and citrus, scallops marinated in sesame-soy-ginger vinaigrette, albacore with yuzu, avocado and kombu… Paley will quickly become your favorite power lunch place, where the truffled roast chicken will divert everyone’s attention from business matters.
