World-class butcher meets elegant fine dining
**Read the latest review of Gwen by Jonathan Gold from The Los Angeles Times.**
Gwen Butcher Shop & Restaurant is the second restaurant from fine dining chef Curtis Stone (of Maude) and the first with his brother Luke Stone. Gwen is both a European-style, chef-driven butcher shop and a restaurant that is redefining fine dining in LA. A menu that calls on fire-based cooking techniques, guests have flexible options including á la carte or a ten-course degustation. A stone’s throw from The Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, also offered is a pre-theatre menu which currently includes an Uber ride to "Hamilton" while your car resides in valet directly behind the restaurant. Reservations are recommended for the dining and wine rooms however walk ins are welcomed and can always be accommodated on the patio or bar. Whether you’re picking up house-made charcuterie, prime and rare breed meats from the retail butcher store, enjoying a meal in the dining room or relaxing with a bite and cocktail on the patio, Gwen delivers the highest standards of quality, taste and service.
Curtis & Luke
The opening of Gwen is a decade-long dream realized for Curtis and Luke, who were first inspired by Gwen’s namesake: their maternal grandmother who lived on a farm outside of Melbourne. It was on Gwen’s farm where they were first exposed to livestock farming, which instilled in them great respect for the process of raising animals for food. Both started their careers in a butcher shop, before Curtis went on to cook in Michelin-starred restaurants while Luke honed his business acumen as the owner and manager of a corporate floristy business in Australia. Working together, they are bringing a world-class butcher shop and dining experience to Los Angeles.
