After six successful years in New York, chef Tom Colicchio brought Craft’s pioneering approach to dining to Los Angeles in 2007. Meant to mimic the experience of dining in someone’s home, pristine seasonal ingredients are simply prepared and served family-style to the center of the table, allowing guests to build their own plates.
Craft’s emphasis on seasonal and local is a natural West Coast fit. The restaurant earned a three-star review from The Los Angeles Times in 2007 and improved to three and a half stars in 2010. Designed by award-winning architecture firm, Bentel & Bentel, Craft Los Angeles seats 300 in a 10,000 square-foot space that includes a dining veranda overlooking a four-acre park.
