About Us

After 12 years of drawing inspiration from her own childhood and personal journey, Chef Dominique Crenn’s flagship restaurant has evolved along with her, complete with a renovation of the dining room and pescatarian tasting menu in early 2023. Although new in concept and design, the restaurant’s story continues to be deeply personal to Crenn. Lifting the veil on the next chapter of her career, the reborn Atelier Crenn will focus on California- the place that she now considers home. 

The menu celebrates California’s rich bounty, highlighting plants, fish, and seafood local to the place. The inspiration for Crenn, however, goes deeper than the ingredients listed on the menu. Guests will embark on a journey that guides them through different times and places, highlighting the beauty of California’s landscape both geographically and culturally.

The synergy between Dominique and Juan Contreras, the Chef Pâtissier, is evident through his use of food as a means to share a story and reconnect guests with nature. Inspiration for the creations are often very personal and rooted in a sense of constant evolution. The menu is pescatarian and evolves with a careful consideration of our impact on the planet. The wine list offers a tiered pairing as well as a curated selection of glasses and bottles from our cellar. We select winemakers from around the world that believe in thoughtful stewardship of the land as the key to creating wines of intrigue, varietal expression and regional character.

We accept reservations for parties of 1-6 on our reservation platform, Tock. Dietary requests are happily accommodated with 3 days notice. Please note your requests when booking your reservation.
