Providence is just beyond amazing. I'm not a foodie at all, and am not the kind of person who would ever spend this much on a meal, but after coming here once, it is now my go-to place for all special occasions. The food is just unbelievable -- I didn't even know food could taste like this! The innovation and flavor in every bite is like nothing else I have ever known. Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants of all time. More

Incredible restaurant, one of the best in Los Angeles if not the best The chef is a genius, having the fish, salad, and meat all done creatively with such an amazing combination of flavors. The branzino was cooked perfectly with just the right seasoning. The tomahawk overwhelmingly the best thing on the menu. The little gem was securely exquisite. Service was attentive and a perfect low-key ambience. My only criticism would be perhaps lowering the music a little bit, it was hard to hear our Guests talk. The chef should be commended for this excellent performance More

French | Hollywood, Hollywood

Arriving in the United States in 2001, Émé made his way to Los Angeles as Executive Chef at the highly revered L’Orangerie where he challenged perceptions and French cooking technique by renouncing cream and butter sauces in favor of complex layered emulsions and natural jus. In 2005, Émé embarked on his first solo Los Angeles venture and opened the critically lauded Ortolan on West Third Street, where he showcased his impeccable haute cuisine. Shortly after Ortolan debuted in 2005, Émé was honored by Food & Wine as one of the “10 Best New Chefs” and subsequently earned a Michelin star in 2007. After setting a higher standard for the next generation of French restaurants, Émé is now moving in a new direction by introducing KASS Wine Bar + Restaurant.More

Italian | Hollywood, Hollywood

World-renowned Italian Neapolitan pizzeria L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele arrives in Los Angeles early 2019. The first U.S. location of the historic pizzeria featured in the film Eat Pray Love, Antica Pizzeria Da Michele is located in the space which once held Hollywood’s beloved Café Des Artistes. Antica Pizzeria Da Michele will serve traditional Neapolitan pizza, using the same recipes and importing the same ingredients used at its origin restaurant. Upon opening, head pizzaiolo Michele Rubini, who trained in Napoli, will serve the concept’s two classic pizzas, Marinara and Margherita, with plans to expand the menu with the location’s own unique twist in the future. Inspired by Italian courtyards, which serve as central gathering points for locals, guests who visit the all-new Antica Pizzeria Da Michele are seated in “il cortile” the restaurant’s quintessential Hollywood garden—surrounded by lush greenery—where they can view pizzas being prepared.More
