Samir Mohajer, the opening chef at Rustic Canyon and former sous chef at Little Door, is on the verge of opening The Cabbage Patch in the defunct Beverly Hills home of O4U. The name is a reference to Mohajer’s “farm fresh organic fare,” but also to the ‘80s dolls and the dance. He decided on the location due to the high foot traffic.
Mohajer hopes to open The Cabbage Patch before January 25. He’s sourcing beef, lamb and pork from Niman Ranch. Expect locally grown Jidori chicken and locally caught sustainable fish. He plans to offer plenty of rustic salads, sandwiches and rice bowls, with vegetarian options. He promises a “kick ass lamb burger” and “tons of Mediterranean influences,” since he’s Persian.
Initially, The Cabbage Patch will cater to the bustling Beverly Drive lunch crowd, but Mohajer will eventually add a more ambitious dinner menu, catering and brunch.
Mohajer’s design for the 1000-square-foot space will be minimal, with plenty of wood and butcher block tables. The Cabbage Patch is permitted for four outdoor tables, so expect sidewalk seating.
