The Press Release for Jordan Kahn’s New Restaurant Is a Masterpiece

By on Jun 15, 2017 in Press Release |

Jordan Kahn — the LA chef known for his genre-bending work at long-closed Red Medicine and for his very serious, very Instagrammable breakfast bowls at the newish Destroyer — is opening a tasting-menu restaurant in July. So far, he has told GQ that the building is basically from outer space (complete with its own gravity) and the restaurant’s early website copy described “blurring interrelationships between materials and ideas, environment and context, of sound and dissonance.” Cool, got it.

Today, members of the press received the following release:

Vespertine, from Chef/Creator Jordan Kahn and located in the Hayden Tract district of Culver City, CA, is a gastronomical experiment seeking to disrupt the course of the modern restaurant. It is a place of cognitive dissonance that defies categorization, exploring a dimension of cuisine that is neither rooted in tradition nor culture — it is from a time that is yet to be, and a place that does not exist. It is a spirit that exists between worlds. A place of shadows and whispers.

The project was conceived as a result of the structure in which it resides. Designed by world-renowned architect Eric Owen Moss, Vespertine is a 2-story structure, separated into 4 levels of which there are no traditional walls supporting the building. Instead the building is wrapped by an architectural skin — a curtain of undulating steel and glass. The intimate, 22-seat dining room sets the stage for an enigmatic dining experience, comprised of a succession of 18+ courses.

Here are some photos:

And here’s a trailer for good measure:

The place of shadows and whispers opens July 6, and tickets are on sale now via Tock.
