Longtime Los Angeles chef Paul Shoemaker is back with a new San Fernando Valley supper club restaurant. The upcoming spot Verse lands on Lankershim in Toluca Lake/North Hollywood area next month, and comes with some heavy hitter backing.At Verse, Shoemaker — who previously worked everywhere from Providence to Bastide to the short-lived Montresor — is partnering up with Rob Ciancimino, formerly of the Sayers Club, and Manny Marroquin. The latter is an eight-time Grammy winning sound mixer (who is up for a handful of new awards this year as well) who runs the adjacent Larrabee Studios. The group previously ran the underground supper club pop-up Intro. The plan, reps say, is to combine the talents of all three into a modern supper club experience, meaning Shoemaker-level food like grilled meats and lots of produce, along with cocktails from Ciancimino and a live entertainment and audio element, including a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustics system.
Co-Owned by "This Is Us” star Jon Huertas.It all started when Huertas took Nicole out on their first date — and they noticed a distinct lack of places to truly gather and eat in Venice. But a chance meeting at Alvarado and Hermosillo’s Venice Beach Wines (and adjoining restaurant Cerveteca), and the couple wanted in on their next big project. That became Clutch, which opened in 2015; the name is a partial shout-out to the mechanics of motorcycles and cars, which make up its theme — but also urban slang for “perfect, what is needed,” he says.Five years on, the 88-seater serves dry rub barbecue with sauce on the side, surf-and-turf, tortillas, wings and other hearty Cal-Mex fusion cuisine, attracting fans including Will Forte and Ryan Seacrest, who rented the place out for a company Christmas party. And as per Huertas’ vision of community, the tables are long wooden communal affairs with stools. An outdoor patio for further seating faces Lincoln Boulevard.
