About 189 by Dominique Ansel
In November 2017, James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Dominique Ansel launched his first-ever restaurant, 189 by Dominique Ansel, in Los Angeles at The Grove. The name references Dominique’s original bakery in New York at 189 Spring Street, which coincidentally is also the LA restaurant’s address (189 The Grove Drive). It was simply meant to be. Serving lunch and dinner, the menu features modern American cuisine with creative twists on classic comforting dishes, while their Weekend Table takes brunch to a whole new level with a communal feast of seasonal dishes served family-style.
