At Jon & Vinny’s in Los Angeles: Kenter Canyon stone ground porridge, toasted almonds, Gaviota strawberries, orange blossom honey (with almond milk)

We’ve been sweeping the country — from Camden, Maine, to Venice, California — in recent weeks, in search of creative chefs and cuisine, and insights into KITCHEN CREATIVITY.

Having just returned from Los Angeles, we’re still excited about the restaurants we visited there (which included Crossroads, Gjelina, Ink, Jon & Vinny’s, Odys + Penelope, Pizzeria Mozza, Plant Food + Wine, Rustic Canyon, Spago, and Sycamore Kitchen).

Special thanks to the entire team at Jon & Vinny’s — headed by chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo — for making our breakfast (which included the Kenter Canyon stone-ground porridge made from bulgur and wheat pictured above and breakfast pizza) there both delicious AND fun!


Jon & Vinny’s is at 412 N. Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036.  323.334.3369. Website:
