For chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, Los Angeles is a city of muses

Posted August 01, 2016

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.
