Tucked in the trendy Godfrey Hotel Hollywood, About Last Knife (ALK) invites diners on a unique culinary journey. Led by Executive Chef Olivier Rouselle, ALK promises not just a meal, but an experience where every dish has a story.

One highlight is ALK’s monthly dinner series, led by Chef Rouselle. These events at The Godfrey Hotel Hollywood offer an evening of good food paired with fresh ingredients.

I recently got a sneak peek of ALK’s upcoming wine-pairing event. It was a memorable preview of what’s to come, including tequila and cocktail pairings, all for $95 per person.

Now, let’s dive into the culinary delights offered at ALK. The gastronomic journey commences with the refreshing Scottish salmon crudo paired with daikon salad and citrus ponzu—an exquisite introduction to the flavors of the sea. Following this, the roasted gambas and scallops with market vegetable sugar snap pea coulis showcase the chef’s mastery, blending succulent seafood with vibrant market-fresh vegetables.

Next, the Seared Halibut with Lemon Risotto and Super Snap Peas showed off Chef Rouselle’s skills. Perfectly cooked halibut with citrus-infused risotto and snap peas created a tasty blend.

For those seeking a heartier option, the roasted duck confit with baked market apple and Maui onion sauce provides a rich and savory experience that satisfies the palate. Each dish is thoughtfully paired with wines from Italy and California, enhancing the dining experience with complementary flavors.

To conclude the meal, indulge in the decadence of profiteroles with vanilla bean ice cream and a Valrhona sauce—a perfect sweet finale. This elegant dessert features light and airy pastry shells drizzled with rich chocolate, adding a luxurious touch to the dining experience.

ALK has some future pairing meals that would make for a wonderful Mother’s or Father’s Day gift, or just to treat yourself. On May 17th (tequila-pairing) and June 21st (cocktail-pairing) these ticketed events will be offered for typically $95 per person. Regardless of the pairing that you choose, you always have the option of some great non-alcoholic beverages to pair with your meal if that is your preference.

From the impeccable service to the inspired culinary creations, every aspect of the dining experience surpassed my expectations. If you’re looking for a culinary adventure that is delicious and leaves a lasting impression, look no further than About Last Knife. If you are looking to make this more than dinner, staying at the Godfrey will make it an extra special night to remember.
