Hands-On, Private Dining Experience for Groups in Los Angeles

The LA Interactive Meal is a unique and fun private dining experience in Los Angeles that’s easier than a cooking class and more exciting than just booking a table. Guests will enjoy a welcome drink and snacks as they mix and mingle before making their own incredible cocktails. Then, they’ll sit to savor a seasonal entrée with a beverage pairing, play food and drink trivia for prizes, and end with a special flavor finale. It’s an authentic way to connect with your group over food and drinks.
