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

We are proud to announce that PHENAKITE our restaurant located at Second Home Hollywood, has been recognized by the esteemed Michelin Guide.

PHENAKITE founder and chef, Minh Phan has done something unprecedented, curating an award-winning dining experience in our courtyard and garden that transforms the Second Home workspace into a one of a kind experience that lasts for mere hours.

Born from the restraints of a global pandemic, Second Home’s entire mission is to help creators create.

This dining concept has electrified L.A.’s culinary scene, with Minh and her team recently earning 2021’s L.A. Times Restaurant Of The Year.

After meeting Minh, we recognized quickly that our brands were aligned by a connection to nature and community. This collaboration is a vital example of the creative collision we like to encourage here at Second Home, the birth of a radical haute cuisine experience inspired by Los Angeles. We think Second Home is the perfect venue for such an occurrence, where imagination, environment and community align to introduce something completely new to the world.

For your chance to have a seat at the chef’s table, reservation requests can be made here.
