Jonathan Whitener

Tastemaker

Before opening Here's Looking At You, Chef Jonathan Whitener worked alongside Lien Ta at Animal, where they dug one another's talent and badassery so much they joined forces to chase Lien's childhood dream of owning a restaurant. Fast forward a year and they're killing it in K-Town, serving up “fine-ish non-Korean dining with a good wine list and fun cocktails.” Now that they’ve settled into K-Town, they can’t imagine opening HLAY anywhere else.
