Mediterraneo at the 17-acre Westlake Village Inn recently celebrated a spectacular remodel and updated menu. After six months of renovations, the Zagat-rated restaurant, a long time favorite for locals, is back in business for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Consistent with the Tuscan vibe of the Inn, guests of the restaurant can feel the ambiance of an open-air villa in the Mediterranean. The beautiful patio seating alongside the Inn’s private lake with fountains and ducks is picture perfect. There is also a front patio that is dog-friendly and furnished with a fireplace. The stylish atmosphere of the interior is light and bright with custom chandeliers imported from Murano, Italy, tan upholstery and blonde-wood plank flooring throughout the main dining room. The restaurant also boasts beautiful artwork from Westlake Village Inn owner, John Notter’s personal collection from all over the world for guests to admire.
Adding to the restaurant’s sex appeal, the bar has tripled in length and now has spacious seating for 18. The new bar menu of signature handcrafted cocktails includes such luscious libations as the S.H. Spritz and a delicious Blood Orange Old Fashioned. In addition, the restaurant also offers an extensive, unparalleled wine list.
The lunch and dinner menus have been revamped with culinary excellence by Executive Chef Lisa Biondi. The diverse menu features California favorites, Italian dishes and Mediterranean staples with fare that is fresh and locally sourced. While everything is noteworthy, some highlight unique menu items include Salatim, Grilled Spanish Octopus, Mushroom Lentil Kefte, homemade pasta and a variety of perfectly cooked steaks, seared at 1500 degrees in the state of the art Waldorf Cooking Suite. The menu also offers several vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options.
Mediterraneo is open Monday through Friday, from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM for lunch and for Happy Hour from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM. Dinner is served from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
