Eleven Madison Park Chef Coming to DTLA, Cooking Collabo With Michael Voltaggio
The Arts District sure is the hot spot to be these days -- especially if you're a chef (or a hipster, for that matter.) A few years back when Church & State opened underneath the Biscuit Lofts, the area was still a bit of a gamble. But now it's become the hotbed of dining Downtown. Bestia, Handsome Roasters, Bread Lounge and Little Bear are just a few that have opened, and now a chef from Eleven Madison Park is partnering up with the folks behind the Churchill, the Hudson, and Clover Juice to open a new restaurant.
Chef David Nayfeld, formerly the sous at the three star Michelin restaurant Eleven Madison Park in New York, will be helming the kitchen at the still-unnamed project downtown slated to open in late summer/early fall of this year. He'll be cooking a collaborative dinner with Michael Voltaggio at Ink on June 4 to introduce the city to his cooking.
According to the L.A. Times, Nayfeld comes with some pretty serious credentials:
Nayfeld is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and has worked in the kitchens of Aqua in San Francisco, Joel Robuchon's Mansion at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and Cru in New York, as well as Eleven Madison Park, which has three Michelin stars and six James Beard awards. Nayfield also has had stints at Philippe Rochat in Switzerland, Albert and Ferran Adria's Tickets and 41 Degrees in Spain and l'Agapé Substance, Frenchie and Jacques Genin in Paris.
