Located in the heart of Los Feliz, LA’s newest eatery, MessHall, re-interprets regional American dining that founder & CEO Rob Serritella refer's to as a classic "Gastro Tavern". Menu's to include - breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, late-night and fresh raw oyster bar. Our culinary team re-conceptualizes American favorites using local, sustainable, organic and seasonal ingredients. The bar program will feature top barsmiths and industry frontman, Erik Lund (James Beard nominee) with a heavy emphasis on classics, small batch new American spirits, and craft beers. MessHall provides a relaxed atmosphere of social/communal dining and a spacious outdoor patio. Open spaces with a neo-industrial feel incorporate elements of the location’s history such as the reveil of the architectural dome ceiling, including its past as Cecil B. DeMille’s Willard’s Chicken Inn and later The Brown Derby.

MessHall stands in the storied walls of what was once Willard’s Chicken Inn, and later The Brown Derby. During the “Golden Age of Hollywood”, legendary film director Cecil B. DeMille opened Willard’s Chicken Inn, a country-colonial chicken restaurant that quickly became the place to be for Hollywood’s elite. The building’s unique dome-shaped roof allowed for a water pumping system that made it one of the first air conditioned restaurants. The structure was designed by influential architect Wayne McAllister, credited with creating some of the most popular mid-century drive-ins and car hops. After Willard's closed in 1940, the Los Feliz Brown Derby Restaurant opened on the site as a 24-hour Drive-in Car Cafe, and remained popular till the ‘60s. MessHall now moves into one of architect McAllister’s only original designs still standing.
