LA chef Roy Choi brings Hawaiian flavors
Executive chef and co-owner Roy Choi grew up in Los Angeles, but after a trip to Hawaii he knew he wanted the cuisine at A-Frame to be Hawaiian style (he owns the restaurant with David Reiss). Choi became known for his Kogi taco trucks, which blend the ubiquitous LA taco truck with ingredients from his Korean heritage. They have attracted huge buzz, and a following of artists, bloggers, surfers, and celebrities, who were happy to follow him here, his first brick-and-mortar restaurant. The place has a casual, communal vibe.
