Kali Garden-to-Table Michelin-Starred Restaurant

Chef Kevin Meehan went door to door in Larchmont Village asking his neighbors if he could use their front yard to plant a restaurant garden. A few doors down, a neighbor said yes, and lets him use the space to grow a lot of the ingredients for his now Michelin-starred restaurant, Kali. You can’t get much more local than that! Chef Kevin’s restaurant celebrates all things Kali-fornian. Our favorite dish is the uni spaghetti with bread crumbs and ricotta whey, but we also love the yellowtail crudo, the parsnip agnolotti, and the dry-aged beef burger. Save room for the meringue gelato with shaved candied egg yolk on top.
