What happened to Sam Marvin? [moved from L.A. board]

  • 5

Does anyone know if he's working somewhere? Or maybe opened his own place? Is he even in LA?

  1. I am a fellow chef and big fan of of his food. I spoke with him about a month ago and know that he has formed a restaurant group with some high profile financial guys and his front man partner from Le Dome. They have been in development for sometime now and they just signed a deal on there first location, 7th and Grand. from what I hear it is a pretty spectacular space. I too miss his food and think he is one of the most unheralded chefs this city has ever had.

      YAY!! I'm a huge fan of his food and I work in downtown. Any other news about the venture? What kind of place is it going to be?

          Any update on Chef Marvin and when we might next be able to eat his food?

            Chef Marvin is executive chef at Bottega Louie - on 7th/Grand in Downtown LA (bottegalouie.com). The doors to the restaurant officially opened last Monday and it's now open seven days a week. Hope this helps!
