Since then, Kevin has apprenticed at Michelin-starred L’alban Chambon in Brussels and made his way through several acclaimed LA hotspots such as L'Orangerie, Bastide, Citrine, Patina and Cafe Pinot, but he still appreciates some good fried chicken. Now, with full reins at Kali, which opened in January of this year, he has set out to turn fine dining on its head.

But when Kevin isn’t charring avocados or filleting fresh bass, he has an appreciation for the less fine things in life, like tacos, shawerma and several Koreatown offerings. Executive chefs, they’re just like us!
