All About Nikita
The upscale Mediterranean-Italian restaurant Nikita officially debuted over the summer along Malibu’s Carbon Beach oceanfront (also touted as the world’s most expensive sandbox). The latest culinary destination in Malibu, California is owned by Oracle Corporation’s co-founder and CEO Larry Ellison; it’s rumored to have been named after Ukrainian actress and Ellison’s current girlfriend, Nikita Kahn.
Situated just a stone’s throw away from the eponymous Malibu pier, Nikita Restaurant features Zen-inspired decor amid giant glass panes, which provide an incredible view of the Pacific Ocean and a spacious rooftop patio that offers casual and comfortable seating for alfresco dining.
The Nikita kitchen churns out elegantly plated appetizers and well-crafted dishes by renowned Michelin-starred chef Massimiliano Blason. The high-end restaurant enlisted the help of Greg Seider of Manhattan’s The Summit Bar to design their cocktail menu and Renee-Nicole Kubin to take charge of food and wine pairings. Rounding off the Nikita team is Karl Kessab, the restaurant’s resident tea sommelier.
The Restaurant’s Fabulous Commercial Custom Wine Cellar
Aside from serving delectable cuisine and tempting cocktails, Nikita also boasts an impressive selection of world class wines. In fact, the restaurant’s elegant interior includes a commercial custom wine cellar that can hold over 1500 bottles, allowing for a steady flow of distinctive reds, whites, and bubblies.
The presence of a carefully constructed commercial custom wine cellar can come in handy, especially when hosting a wine-specific event, such as the restaurant’s recent month long celebration countdown to the fourth annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, that required continuous pouring and sipping of Pink and Yellow Label Vueve.
Nikita Restaurant’s commercial wine storage and display was designed and constructed by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, the premier wine cellar builder in California. They specialize in creating a custom wine cellar space that provides maximum storage capacity, as well as stunning wine displays and presentation.
