The menu at Chateau Marmont isn’t particularly unique (most dishes are standard American), but it’s certainly better than it needs to be. So although it’s fairly likely you’ll spot an Olsen twin while you’re here, there’s reason to stay even after the celebrity sighting. The big patio is also the perfect place to while away an afternoon. Just don’t try for a photo opp with any of those stars - you’ll be asked to leave faster than the paparazzi are able to sniff out a Kardashian.
