Mr. C's new Italian tapas and cocktails menu, Tar & Roses opening plans

Mr. C Beverly Hills, new Italian tapas and cocktails menu starts at 5 PM with a selection of three “Cicchetti” appetizers or four varieties of cheeses and charcuteries for $35 per person, which includes an “Aperitif” drink.

Chef Andrew Kirschner‘s new neighborhood restaurant Tar & Roses, Santa Monica, plans to open in late November or December is described as “at once rustic and elegant, simple and complex, masculine and feminine.” The menu, like it’s namesake is a juxtaposition of extremes with Andrew’s travels to Italy, Spain and Southeast Asia influencing his cooking. But the heart of the kitchen is centered in its wood burning oven.
