May 9 > Osteria La Buca > Hollywood

Osteria La Buca has come a long way, baby, since it was a hole in the wall with Mamma in the kitchen. The once tiny restaurant has expanded up and out twice in the last few years - most recently with an overhaul by relative newcomer Brendan Ravenhill.
Ravenhill is a designer with a degree in sculpture from Oberlin and a masters in industrial design from RISD. A trip to LA turned into a permanent move for Ravenhill and his wife last year. And an article on his "rustic but refined" bottle openers turned into a meeting with La Buca's owners, who promptly hired him to redesign the restaurant.

Join us on Monday, May 9th for a peek at the redesign and to meet the designer. Brendan will talk to us about how he's gone from designing bottle openers to an entire restaurant, and the challenges of renovating a restaurant that hasn't closed during the process. Plus, we'll have food and drink specials courtesy of Osteria La Buca.
