The Hollywood Reporter's 20 Most Influential Chefs in Hollywood
Today, as every other new menu in town offers biscuits, it's worth remembering that 18 months ago, Tominaga and Dunsmoor prompted the copycatting with their acclaimed Venice pop-up Wolf in Sheep's Clothing and its cornbread-and-pimento-fueled inquiry into Cal-Southern cooking.
The pair, who first met while working at Abbot Kinney Boulevard mainstay Joe's, unveiled their follow-up, The Hart and the Hunter (7950 Melrose Ave.) in October, with an even more pronounced Dixie flair: shrimp 'n' grits, collard greens, coconut cake.
"We're about strong flavors but not heavy dishes," says Tominaga. Adds Dunsmoor: "That's our way into this food."
Where else they eat: La Isla Bonita taco truck at Fourth Street and Rose Avenue in Venice, where they order the whitefish ceviche tostada.
