Video: Vespertine L.A.'s Most Revolutionary Restaurant

The most revolutionary restaurant in L.A. right now is Chef Jordan Kahn’s Vespertine. Vespertine is so much more than a meal. It’s an architectural experience that incorporates the whole “Waffle” building. Diners start outside in the garden, continue up onto the rooftop, greet the chef in the kitchen, and, finally, take a seat in the dining room. To dine at Vespertine is to be transported to another world. Flowers, succulents, seaweed, and space goo are just a selection of offerings you might find on the menu. The dishes look out of this world, but they are delicious. It’s a polarizing restaurant that had mixed reviews when it first opened, but Jonathan Gold loved it and named it his number one restaurant in L.A. Vespertine is game changing and should be on the international map.
