A preview of David Myers' Comme Ca

Last night's opening preview of Comme Ca revealed a lovely re-do of the Middle Eastern cafe Noura on Melrose. Unfortunately the patio and fire pit were gone, but the space has been beautifully revamped in a crisp black and white color scheme, with lots of shiny white subway tiles (even in the bathroom, pictured), blackboards on the walls and black bookshelves lining the bar area. There's a large front room and two smaller rooms in back, with a New York-style vibe reminiscent of Osteria Mozza more than of Paris. Comme Ca is still putting on the finishing touches and David Myers hopes to open for dinner by early November, with lunch and breakfast (!) to follow soon after.
The menu is bistro all the way, from Moules frites ($20) to specials of Choucroute Garni on Wednesdays ($26), Beef bourguignon ($24) and Coq au vin ($24).
Everyone was drinking one of the house cocktails ($13), such the Rumble with rum and crushed blackberries or the East Side Cocktail with gin and cucumber. We saw columnist Joel Stein, Sang Yoon from Father's Office and Joachim Splichal among others at the soiree among the guests. Tastings included buttery oysters, roasted bone marrow and oxtail jam on toast (in photo), brandade fritters, some wonderful cheeses and heavenly bites from Boule like a salted caramel eclair bite and bites of bittersweet chocolate tart. This place is sure to be a big hit with prices that are probably considered reasonable by the Beverly Hills/West Hollywood crowd, a pretty, lively design and French classics that aren't always easy to find in L.A.
