A creative force in Venice for nearly 25 years, David Wolfe is the Executive Chef at FEED on Abbot Kinney. He brings authentic local flavor to connect the restaurant to the community. Brimming with fresh ingredients and ethnic influences, his market-driven menu is well suited to the hip, bustling boulevard.
David’s culinary concept reflects the rustic, multi-ethnic approach to California cuisine he has been refining since receiving critical acclaim at 2424 pico, his first restaurant, which earned a spot on Los Angeles Magazine‘s prestigious Top Ten list.
Drawing inspiration from Southern California’s bountiful ingredients and vibrant ethnic flavors, David utilizes the freshest organic and sustainably harvested products–because they taste the best. He was one of the first chefs to shop at the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market, now a mainstay for chefs in Los Angeles. He is the original creator of the “Korean Taco,” an inspired pairing of two of LA’s tastiest ethnic flavors.
David’s “pop-up restaurants” attracted loyal followers among LA’s creative leaders and adventurous foodies. Transforming art galleries, rooftops and parking lots into venues for social and gastronomic adventure is yet another example of David’s innovative approach to enjoying food.
David was previously chef/owner of TABLE. As Executive Chef for ten years, he reinvigorated the Rose Café, long a favorite hangout for locals and tourists alike. He has been featured in Esquire, Gourmet Magazine, the Los Angeles Times Sunday Magazine, the LA Weekly and other publications. David’s passions extend beyond the kitchen. He is a marathon runner and a classical pianist. He and his wife live and play in Venice with their two children.
