Best New Brunch in Los Angeles

Sandwich of the Week: The Whisper Restaurant and Lounge at The Grove´s Berkshire Pork Belly Bun
“The Berkshire Pork Belly Buns were inspired by my recent trip to Taiwan’s Garden Night Market. The market had a great energy, tight quarters, new aromas and smiling Taiwanese women cooking this luscious Pork Belly Bao, ordered either fatty or extra fatty. Their version was the size of both my hands and had 5 spiced braised pork belly and a fried chicken egg."Visit link

Anthony has worked in the industry for 14 years. He has been a chef up and down California, from San Francisco to San Diego, as well as in his hometown of Los Angeles.
Anthony graduated from the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, but his development truly took off while working under award-winning Asian tapas Chef, Barney Brown. An important stint cooking for Michelin-rated Chef Jean-Francois Meteigner of La Cachette Bistro followed. Anthony earned his first Chef de Cuisine job at the age of 28,
overseeing the globally recognized dining room at The Getty Center Museum. Currently, Anthony has been helming the stoves of the Whisper Lounge at LA’s iconic shopping centers, The Grove and The Americana at Brand, where he continues to develop his farm to table ideals.
Shao grew up in San Francisco where there is a heavy Chinese population and influence, and he ate traditional Chinese food cooked by his grandfather every night. But the allure of American food was very strong. Shao found himself drawn to mac and cheese, casseroles, meat loaf and spaghetti.
As a child, Shao was glued to PBS “Food network,” fascinated as Julia Child, Jacque Pepin, Graham Kerr and Martin Yan shared their techniques and enthusiasms. After high school, he enrolled in culinary school, and trained at a number of restaurants in Los Angeles before meeting Chef Anthony Jacquet, at The Restaurant at the Getty Center. Under Jacquet’s training, Shao was taught the importance of seasonality, sustainability and locally sourced food. Flavor, quality and balance were a credo. And Shao’s passion for food catapulted to a new level.
Shao came to The Whisper Restaurant and Lounge in 2008.
