2019 Farmer & Vegetable Dinner Series

Since opening over 12 years ago, our ethos has always been a commitment to our local market—especially to the passionate and committed farmers who have allowed us to thrive. We take great pride in the relationships we’ve cultivated with them.

The monthly Farmer & Vegetable Dinner Series is an outlet for Executive Chef Andy Doubrava to create very focused celebrations of—and dedications to—one amazing farm or one humble ingredient (or both!). Our proximity to one of the greatest markets in the country gives us the chance to work with the most amazing farmers in the world. Come join us in celebrating these wonderful people, and the incredible hard work and passion they put their backs into every day.

The Schedule

All dinners are 5 courses, with tickets available 1 month in advance via Resy for each night. If any of our dinners are sold out, you can call the restaurant to be added to the waitlist. Follow our Instagram page and check back here to reserve your spot, along with updates on the fun themes we’ll be exploring each month.

Tuesday, July 23 – When Rustic Canyon Met Kato – Last month, the Michelin Guide returned to Southern California and our team was honored to win our first Michelin Star! Out of this accomplishment, another beautiful thing came about – the friendship between our Executive Chef Andy Doubrava and fellow Michelin-starred and award-winning Executive Chef Jon Yao behind Kato.

This intimate restaurant hidden in a West LA strip mall, is serving one of the most compelling, seafood-centric tasting menus in the country, drawing inspiration and flavors from LA and Taiwan. Jon, a San Gabriel Valley native, is self-taught and has been recognized as a Food & Wine “Best New Chef” and was nominated for “Rising Star” by the James Beard Foundation.

To celebrate our respective Michelin stars and their bromance, each restaurant is hosting a hyper-seasonal, 12-Course Dinner that blends Andy and Jon’s cooking styles together. It’s the most extensive tasting menu we’ve ever done and reservations are limited at each spot! Tickets are $165, plus tax and gratuity, and can be booked soon through each restaurant’s respective Resy page. Optional wine and cocktail pairings will be available to purchase that night.
