Our Story

What makes The Edmon so unique?

As you may have already noticed, The Edmon resides inside the Hollywood Historic Hotel. Built in 1927 by S. Charles Lee, the National Landmark captures the beauty of a bygone era. At the time and close proximity to The Paramount Film Studios, it was home to talented stars of Silent Films. During the ‘70’s, storefront renters Edmon’s Unique Furniture and Stone Gallery began restoring the hotel to its former glory, since Edmon Simonian was a fourth generation woodworker. He was highly skilled with a precious gift for crafting, carving, and designing intricate pieces of wood. His one storefront location would eventually expand over the entire block. And roughly 20 years later, Simonian bought the building to fulfill his dream of restoring the entire hotel, down to the original red brick exterior.

The luxuriant texture and style of the hotel was created by architect S. Charles Lee. He is recognized as one of the most prolific motion picture theatre designers of the West Coast and drafted the Hollywood Historic Hotel when he was just 28. Lee’s portfolio spans over 400 theaters throughout California and Mexico. His other local bests include the Bruin Theatre (1937) and the Academy Theatre (1939). Today, Simonian continues to carry on Lee’s craftsmanship, this time into the culinary world with the launch of The Edmon. Original charm. Friendly atmosphere. And great company.

  • A message from Executive Chef Gabriel Cappelli:

    "One of the hardest questions that everyone asks is ‘What kind of food is it?’ And to sum it up, there is no one definitive style or type that the food is. Instead, the inspiration came from the format of how glamorous restaurants used to be. Ala carte items, bigger entree portions, stand alone entrees and sides etc. But at the same time, we've done a great job of keeping the dishes modern with a combination of flavors from around the world. Imagine if Hollywood restaurants in the golden era had the access to the food culture we have knowledge of today. How would they serve and present it? Welcome to the Edmon."
