Ebell's new Executive Chef, Ron Armedndariz

Ebell’s new Executive Chef, Ron Armendariz

Fresh from the lauded Standard Hotel downtown where he was the Executive Sous Chef, Ron Armendariz will be helming our kitchen beginning in October. A graduate of the Southern California School of Culinary Arts in South Pasadena, he trained under chefs David Myers of Hinoki & the Bird, Joachim Splichal of Patina, and Marc Urwand of the Jean George restaurant Mercer Kitchen. He also worked with Wolfgang Puck‘s team to caterer the Academy Awards’ Governer’s Ball.

Perhaps his best credential is that while in culinary school he was hired to help with one event at the Ebell, of which he said, “I was in awe of the history of the building and the feeling I had in that kitchen as we prepared.”  He is eager “…to continue in the tradition of quality and excellence that the Ebell of Los Angeles is known for.”

Welcome, Chef Ron! 

Happy Anniversary, Miko and Don

“We found love right where we are.” Happy anniversary, Miko and Don. May you always be as happy as the day you fell in love. Best wishes from your Ebell family and cheers to many more anniversaries..
