Crossroads at The House of Blues (Opening Night Event)

The House of Blues on the Sunset Strip is synonymous with Hollywood and all the wildness that ensues within its 25 square mile radius. On any given night, World Famous musicians, celebrity Tattoo Artists as well as the Hollywood socialites, can be found whipping those who care into a frenzy, faster than they can bat their fake eyelashes.

But what isn’t fake and never has been, is the House of Blues commitment to staying true to their roots, which means allowing artists of any medium a platform to flex their talents. The Crossroads at The House of Blues is a multicultural melting pot of splendidly woven flavors, created by one of the most talented stars to emerge over the last 5 years, Chef Aar√≥n Sanchez.

The Supreme Plate was on hand recently as the House of Blues had a taste testing to showcase a few of the new menu items. A few hundred lucky guests were treated to some amazing food, expertly mixed libations and a live performance from the super group / collaborative, known as Ozomotli.

Speaking frankly, The House of Blues needed a facelift in the menu department and without a doubt Chef Sanchez gave them a stellar dose of Botox with his intricately detailed cuisine, which is sure to please even the most pickiest of palates.

Offering up everything from delicious Hand Stretched Grilled Flatbread covered in fresh Oaxaca and Cotija cheeses, Pulled Pork Sliders, Seared Tuna Tostadas, Shrimp & Grits and everything in between the House of Blues truly pulled out all the stops for this evening.

Notable dishes included the scrumptious Prime Rib Dip, which pairs Roasted Prime Rib au jus, a creamy horseradish sauce, Gruyere cheese and caramelized onions on a par baked French roll. 
Talk about delicious, this isn’t your average sandwich by any means.

My favorite dish by far was the Shrimp & Grits, which has pan seared Jumbo Shrimp in a Chipotle Garlic Cream Sauce over Crispy Fried Grit Cakes & Sweet Yellow Tomatoes. A few drinks, especially the Hurricanes and a plate of Shrimp & Grits is the perfect way to start off or end an evening as the restaurant is open for dinner 7 nights a week.

Whatever you do, take our word for it and stop by to get some drinks, eat a few handfuls of their delicious Corn Bread & Jalapeno Muffins (that are so good, a fight might break out over who gets the last one) and enjoy the ambience of one of Hollywood’s most popular hangouts, before its long gone.
