A dark, nondescript strip of Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood is probably not where you would expect to go for a gourmet 12-course meal from a Michelin-Star Chef. INTRO Art Gallery & Chef’s Table, which recently opened in December, is a supper club that only operates on Fridays and Saturdays.
Patrons sit at a 24-foot chef’s table while enjoying a specially curated menu from chef Paul Shoemaker and drink wine while checking out an ever-changing art gallery exhibition. Enter in the address to the GPS and you will be led to an inconspicuous black door with no sign. After you knock, you are greeted with a tray of sparkling wine, and welcomed to a candlelit private dining space.
A rotating curation of artists is part of this unique feast. Every month will feature a new artist. Their art will stay up throughout the month for all our guests to view and purchase. January’s artist is Artist Oscar Meza. So what does a 12-course meal cooked by Michelin-Star Chef Paul Shoemaker look like? Flip through the gallery above to find out.
