A NOTE FROM TEAM DA:
Dear Los Angeles, During the pandemic, we’ve had to make some tough choices and make peace with not having a choice sometimes. A few weeks ago, we quietly said goodbye to Dominique Ansel Bakery Los Angeles & 189 by Dominique Ansel, which were temporarily closed in March with the government shutdowns. We now join the list of COVID casualties, alongside our well-respected peers in the industry.
It’s ironic to close when our last memories were of the lines each weekend and nights full of proposals, tree lightings, and blow out finale parties. We’ll miss our Burger Park, Summer Marche, Pie Nights, croissant 101 classes, the chefs we collaborated with, and – most of all – our amazing team and all the smiling faces of our friends and guests. Thank you, LA, for all of your support over the years. Stay safe and we’ll see you again soon! Team DA Los Angeles
All the best,
The DA Team
Creative takes on classic comforting dishes, made with heart.
Chef Dominique Ansel’s first full-service restaurant comes with a serendipitous story. The number 189 references our original bakery address in New York (189 Spring Street), which coincidentally was the same street address in LA as well (189 The Grove Drive). “It was meant to be,” says Chef.
Situated on the second floor above our Bakery, the menu is driven by the food we love – casual, honest, and with a bit of surprise. Our food is rooted in traditional French techniques, but the flavors range from different cultures and uses the best California produce we can get our hands on. The restaurant seats up to 150, including indoor and outdoor terrace and bar seating.
Join us for dinner Wednesday-Sunday evenings, and brunch on Saturdays & Sundays.
WEEKEND TABLE BRUNCH
On Saturdays and Sundays, Weekend Table at 189 by Dominique Ansel turns the tables on what brunch can be, with an interactive communal feast of seasonal dishes served family-style. There are no menus. Instead, each table features cutting boards at the center, and as an array of savory and sweet dishes come out of the kitchen, guests can add items onto their boards for their meals. Each table receives a brunch card that’s stamped with each item ordered, as dishes are passed throughout the room by our servers.
A 12-seat private dining room is also available and can come inclusive with its own private terrace (for a total seating of up to 22 guests) for events and special occasions. The full dining room and outdoor terrace can also be reserved for your celebrations. For event inquiries, please contact us at [email protected].
