ABOUT CHEF VIET PHAM:

Viet Pham has been with Ray’s and Stark Bar since it opened in 2011. Assuming the executive chef role in spring of 2014, Pham has channeled the artistic energy of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art by pursuing his vision of culinary expressionism. Pham prioritizes using seasonal ingredients, capitalizes on the restaurants garden located on campus, as well as from distinctive California vendors. “We are blessed to have a forager who travels from farm to farm, picking out the best products at their peak of the season” Pham describes “Dragon,” the restaurant’s elite forager. Having the access to these ingredients, Pham is inspired to explore their capabilities.
