From the acclaimed Los Angeles chef David Myers Comme Ça, is a lively and modern French brasserie, at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. David Myers' focus on unique dining experiences and award-winning culinary concepts is the driving force behind the dynamic David Myers Group, which includes Southern California restaurants Sona, Comme Ça and Pizzeria Ortica.
“Comme Ça’s traditional fare with a sophisticated spin is a perfect fit for The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas – it's accessible yet provocative, delicious yet chic. I could not ask for a more fitting home in Las Vegas,” says Myers.
Comme Ça will feature classic brasserie dishes, innovative cocktails, and freshly baked pastries. In addition to an impressive wine selection, the restaurant will offer a menu of seasonal handcrafted classic cocktails shaken with Myers' modern sensibility. Designed by acclaimed interior architect Adam D. Tihany, the Las Vegas Comme Ça will feature an expansive outdoor patio with magnificent – and apropos – views of the Las Vegas version of the Eiffel Tower.
Myers has worked under such prestigious chefs as Charlie Trotter at his eponymous restaurant in Chicago, Gerard Boyer in his Michelin three-star restaurant Les Crayeres in Reims, France, Daniel Boulud at Restaurant Daniel in New York and Joachim Splichal at Patina. As Executive Chef at Patina, Myers participated in the 2000 renovation and reopening of the famed restaurant. Soon after, he joined the executive board of Raffles L'Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, claiming the position of Executive Chef and opening the restaurant JAAN in the hotel. He later supervised the opening of JAAN in the Westin Stamford Equinox in Singapore.
In 2002, Myers opened his first restaurant Sona, featuring modern cuisine with global influences. Sona has established itself as one of Los Angeles' top restaurants, receiving such accolades as the Wine Spectator Grand Award from 2006 through 2010, inclusion in the list of “places to dine before you die” from O: The Oprah Magazine and a five-star rating—the only restaurant to hold this honor—from Angeleno in April 2007. Sona has also held one Michelin star since the inception of the Los Angeles guide in 2007.

Comme Ça was named a Conde Nast Traveler “Hot Table” in 2008, has been singled out for the best burger in Los Angeles by LA Weekly’s Pulitzer Prize Winning critic Jonathan Gold and one of the top 10 burgers by Gayot. Pizzeria Ortica, Myers' vision of a traditional Italian neighborhood pizzeria and first foray into Italian food, opened in Orange County in January 2009. Born out of his love for Japanese lifestyle, culture and cuisine, Myers will open two new restaurant concepts in Tokyo in fall 2010: a high-end patisserie called SOLA by David Myers and a 40-seat, California-inspired restaurant featuring Japanese ingredients called David Myers Café.
