“You feel as if you are part of something bigger than yourself, a hungry, chattering component of a grand pleasure machine.” – Jonathan Gold
Chef Neal Fraser’s modern American cuisine is refined yet approachable and highlights the multi-cultural influences of his native city – Los Angeles. Fraser’s menu features seasonal small and large format plates ranging from snacks or “kickshaws” to entrees meant to be enjoyed by the whole table. An extensive cocktail menu by Tobin Shea features well-balanced, bespoke renditions of the classics. Sommelier Ben Teig’s wine list is eclectic with a focus on Burgundy, Bordeaux, and California, and dedicated to aged and affordable wines – something for everyone.
Located in downtown Los Angeles, Redbird is carved into one of the city’s most historic architectural gems, inside the former rectory building of Vibiana – the cathedral-turned-event-venue also owned and operated by the Frasers and their partners. Designer Robert Weimer and Amy Knoll Fraser created a dynamic space that pays homage to the cathedral next door and the existing timeless architecture by inserting simple modern forms to complement rather than overtake the feel of the rooms. The result is a warm and comfortable considered space.
