Farley Elliott is the Senior Editor at Eater LA and the author of Los Angeles Street Food: A History From Tamaleros to Taco Trucks. He covers restaurants in every form, from breaking news to the culture, people, and history that surrounds LA's dining landscape.

Ricardo Valdes has taken the reins at Downtown’s L.A. Chapter, the restaurant inside the Ace Hotel on Broadway. Valdez will act as executive chef under Ken Addington, the overall chef/partner who hails from Five Leaves in Brooklyn, and takes over from Micah Fields, who was previously installed in the position.

Prior to his move into L.A. Chapter late last fall, Valdes spent time under Dominique Crenn at Abode in Santa Monica, and most recently as chef de cuisine at Delancey in Seattle. An updated menu for L.A. Chapter is below.
