Raw Food Guru Matthew Kenney Opening Restaurant and Culinary School Inside Santa Monica Place

New, 21 comments

Raw foodist chef Matthew Kenney operates restaurants in Oklahoma City and Chicago, and he's about to add Los Angeles to his list. A seemingly appropriate fit for a city as health conscious as LA, this fall Kenney will debut a raw restaurant called M.A.K.E. next to Matthew Kenney Culinary inside Santa Monica Place. Both spots will feature modern "living" or uncooked cuisine (foods can be cooked up to 118°F).

While Matthew Kenney Culinary focuses on the teaching aspect of creating raw dishes, M.A.K.E. is where you'll come for dinner. The eatery will be divided into three areas. An omakase-style bar wherein guests can order a chef's tasting menu, an earthy dining room, and an outdoor patio. [EaterWire]
