"An ambitious and quietly radical fine-dining project conceived in the eye of the pandemic’s storm."

PHENAKITE : rare mineral that forms into gems under extreme pressure.

From Chef Minh Phan of porridge + puffs, PHENAKITE was born as a weekend residency in Second Home Hollywood’s magical courtyard in the the summer of 2020 and quickly developed a cult following.

Her modern angeleno restaurant redefines fine dining, taking guests on a nine-plus course tasting journey of the land, sea and air, juxtaposing introspection, expression and transformation.

We’re incredibly proud to be the home of LA Times Restaurant of the Year 2021.
