A little piece of Tinseltown is coming to Burbank this weekend as a new restaurant called the Hollywood Pasta Company opens on Burbank Boulevard with Chef Kurt Ehrlich, former chef at Tavern on the Green in New York City, at the helm.
Ehrlich said he's wanted to open a restaurant in Burbank since last year.
“I love Burbank. I'm going to move here next year,” said Ehrlich, who lives in North Hollywood.
When the space at 3803 W. Burbank Blvd. opened up, he decided the time was right.
Ehrlich brings a wealth of experience to his new restaurant. He's previously owned Kurt's Winery and the Pine Valley House, both in San Diego. He's also been a chef at such diverse venues as the Waldorf Astoria in New York City and the Buena Vista Resort at Disney World in Florida. And he's served as chef at many Oscar and Golden Globe parties.
