Inspiration is everywhere for Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, from the delicate hand of a pioneering sushi chef to the deep-dive curation of an iconic cheese shop. But when it comes to sparking creativity in a cultural capital like Los Angeles, the duo behind restaurants like Animal, Trois Mec, Jon & Vinnys make a point of looking beyond the world of food. Here, the chefs reveal their affinity for LA’s community of painters, sculptors and other visual craftsmen, the institutions who support their work, and the affinity they see between chefs and artists. 

 

From an interior design shop that reveals its distinct taste and perspective in its inventory, to a creamery that celebrates soCal-sourced ingredients, Jon and Vinny’s LA picks reveal an appreciation for personality and hard-earned expertise.
