Call Again Hospitality’s story began with a dream. It’s a story of perseverance and innovation with roots back to a serendipitous meeting in the Catskills after two families survived WWII and landed in America. When a 20 year-old Bernard Rosenson met a 17 year-old Cynthia Wolkin through their younger sisters’ friendship and a summer camp connection.

Bernard and Cynthia got married in 1969 and embarked on a journey that led them to California. Along the way, the Rosenson’s also had three children – Elissa, Candice, and Jonathan.

In 1996 they refurbished the shuttered rooftop club The Sky Room into one of the area’s most well-known and longest running establishments. In 2005 Bernard’s French roots, love of wine and California grapes led them to establish Coquelicot Vineyards where they began making award winning organic wine for both the retail and wholesale market. Following that, the Rosenson’s foray into the world of hospitality grew with the purchase of the Mirabelle Inn and the subsequent opening of First & Oak in Solvang, earning a Michelin Plate Award in 2019. Soon after, they added the Chateau du Sureau and The Elderberry House restaurant in Oakhurst to their portfolio, a Relais & Châteaux recognized property.

Today the history of The Mulholland is also intertwined with the family’s journey. Originally an art gallery, the space evolved into Bernard’s Wine Gallery where the whole family worked and Cynthia became a neighborhood fixture behind the counter. Underground cult wine dinners flourished in the space from 2008 to 2016 and in 2017, the idea to make this a bonafide restaurant was born. The family expanded the kitchen of the historic building into the parking lot, preserving as much of the original structure as they could. Plans for the restaurant took shape in 2018 and 2019, but in 2019 Bernard’s untimely passing put the project on hold and that was followed by the additional challenges of the pandemic. In 2022 Elissa, Candice and Jonathan got back to work to bring their dad’s vision to life under their own hospitality group moniker, Call Again.

Call Again is a throwback to their mom Cynthia’s days in Brooklyn where her father opened a barbershop on Beekman doing cuts and shaves for the city’s top brass and where, with their broken English they greeted their regulars and reminded them to Call Again. The three still own and operate Coquelicot Vineyards, Rose & Son Wines, Mirabelle Inn, First & Oak, Chateau du Sureau, The Elderberry House and now, The Mulholland in Calabasas and they hope you Call Again.
