Taking a page from Christopher Bailey’s book, today Valentino Garavani and longtime collaborator Giancarlo Giammetti announced the launch of the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum, a career spanning exhibit in the form of a downloadable desktop application (the first of its kind from a renowned fashion house).

Guy Starkman and Darren Dzienciol’s new venture, Sherbourne, opens tonight in West Hollywood. The restaurant is nestled behind Jerry’s Famous Deli on Beverly Boulevard, which is also owned by Guy.
The small open space with dark wood panels and leather booths is reminiscent of a log cabin den and a rustic outdoor living room at the same time, part of it’s homely charm. I asked Darren about the inspiration behind the space behind Jerry’s -
We wanted it to feel like an extension of The Beverly, a rustic style tavern serving fine comfort food with amazing quality ingredients and presentation. Also, we wanted it to feel intimate and hard to find, like you only know about it if you’re told by one of us.
The cuisine is mostly American, with some surprising European twists sure to please even the most discerning palate. My favorite?? The whipped potato bar, where you can get your choice of three different potatoes whipped on the spot to dress up with a surprising array of toppings (Brown sugar? Oreos, anyone??) in lieu of the standard bread and butter starter baskets. For this new gem to be behind another restaurant, it’s definitely light years ahead of most***
