Replacing the W Hotel’s Earth & Ocean—which produced such chefs as Lark’s Johnathan Sundstrom, Brian McCracken and Dana Tough of the Coterie Room/etc., and Maria Hines of Tilth and Golden Beetle, before more recently drifting into obscurity—TRACE's menu focuses (surprise) on "traceable" local/organic/sustainable foods. As with its predecessor, you may expect high-end drinks, swanky decor, and the work of chef Steven Ariel (Cafe Juanita, Canlis, Luc, and a native of Hawaii, so aloha!).
