Alongside Executive Director of Culinary and Top Chef Canada winner, Matthew Stowe, the entire staff is preparing to give guests an unforgettable dining experience.

"We're excited to cater to Los Angeles' cosmopolitan palette. JOEY DTLA will naturally become a hub for a global tribe of patrons who are keen to experience a variety of dishes from all corners of the world, while at the same time utilizing ingredients from the local farmer's markets," Stowe said.
