To inaugurate our arrival in L.A., we are heading straight to this center of Japanese kappo cuisine. Kappo, which means ‘to cut and to cook,’ is a multi-course meal left entirely to the chef. In other words, perfect for a Tasting Collective event. Executive Chef-Owner David Schlosser, a Santa Monica native, attended the Culinary Institute of America. Upon graduating, he worked in a three-starred Michelin restaurant in the south of France, did a tour of duty at L’Arpege in Paris before returning to the States to work under Ludo Lefebvre at L’Orangerie. After a life-changing three day layover in Tokyo, Chef Schlosser found a new and perhaps ultimate passion in Japanese cuisine. The late, great Jonathan Gold named Shibumi one of L.A.’s 101 Best Restaurants in 2016 and said that, “David Schlosser…presides over his dining bar, fashioned from a 400-year-old cypress trunk, with the intense concentration you find in the very best chefs.”
