West Hollywood's Norah has a stylish new sister on the Westside. Margot has arrived in the greenhouse rooftop of chic Culver City lifestyle hub Platform, where guests can enjoy Mediterranean-meets-California fare in an indoor or alfresco setting.

After exploring the culinary landscapes of Spain, France, and Italy, Margot's team —IB Hospitality founder and restaurateur Rohan Talwar, executive chef Michael Williams, general manager Josh Snowden, and beverage director David Kupchinsky — created a menu coastal-inspired dishes as well as vino and cocktail offerings of over 180 wines. Expect brunch ($12 to $20) like a avocado toast on focaccia bread with sunflower seeds and calabrian chili, poached eggs and polenta with roasted pepper sugo and feta cheese, and fried chicken with calabrian honey, to name a few.

Strawberry spritz, fried chicken, and poached eggs & polenta for brunch.

There are also focaccia bread sandwiches (including chickpea panelle and albacore tuna, $15 to $17); lunch entrees ($24 to $32) like spaghetti with tuna conserva and sundried tomatoes, bombolotti, and grilled sea bream; meat, seafood, and pasta dinner dishes ($24 to $38 and up) like Spanish octopus, prime ribeye, tagliarini, and pansotti; and of course, plenty of salads and grilled vegetables ($15 to $17).

For aperitivo, there are crudo bar dishes ($18 to $44) like oysters, kampachi, and aji mackerel; cocktails ($9 and up) like aperol or strawberry spritzes, grapefruit gin & tonic, and rebujito; and shared plates ($8 to $15) like stuffed piquillo peppers, 'nduja toast, and pan con tomate. Last but not least, expect desserts ($11) like churros, almond sorbet, and tiramisu tres leches as well as coffee cocktails ($11 to $12) like the espresso martini, scropino bambino, and amaretto sour, to name a few.

As far as the interiors, renowned designers Thomas Schoos and Lisa Gill dreamed up the bright and modern restaurant boasts hygge and industrial-bohemian vibes, which features a massive floral mural, canvas-covered pendant lights, and heavy black ropes strung throughout the sun-filled space. Fiddle leaf fig trees add a Cali touch of indoor greenery, while raw wood seating, marble surfaces and geometric tiled tables complete the 'grammable space. (Speaking of which, there's even a photo booth — complete with festive filters.)
