The idea of Dream Hotel Hollywood is that it will be a cornerstone of a new zone of hotels, restaurants, bars and shops similar to Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking District, where an old urban industrial district has become an upscale neighborhood flush with restaurants, shops and hotels.
And there are four restaurants where patrons can choose to dine, including one of the highest-grossing restaurant groups in the country-Asian-themed TAO. Tao, is intended to feels like it is set on the steps of an ancient temple, an impression enhanced by a vast scale unapparent from the street.
Tao in Las Vegas was the highest-grossing restaurant in the United States last year with nearly $48 million in sales, according to Restaurant Business magazine. The two Tao restaurants in New York were also among the country’s top-grossing eateries. The Hollywood Tao is fourth in the chain, and paparazzi are already staking it out.
