The Avenues: Art, Fashion and Design District and Los Angeles Times Magazine is pleased to present TASTE ART, an inaugural series of innovative dining events that pair West Hollywood’s premier art galleries and restaurants, choreographing culturally-enriching dinner experiences.

“Art Tastings” will take place at participating restaurants each Tuesday evening during the month of October featuring diverse and inventive collaborations for every style, taste and budget. Each tasting will consist of a multi-course menu and wine pairing inspired by a selection of artwork that will be presented in a gallery-like atmosphere. During each event, the curator, chef and sommelier will each present their unique contributions to the menu, providing insight into their philosophies behind the evening’s art, food, and wine selections. TASTE ART will kick off with an opening gala, hosted by Los Angeles Times Magazine Design and Culture Editor Mayer Rus, on Tuesday, October 5th.
The event will feature a collaboration between Tasende Gallery and Gordon Ramsay at The London Hotel. The evening will highlight a selection of significant paintings and sculptures by celebrated contemporary artist Fernando Botero and a three-course menu and wine pairing by Chef Andy Cook and sommelier Jeremy Roberts. TASTE ART’s October series will launch a seasonal calendar of art tasting events promoting West Hollywood’s unique creative perspective and commitment to artistic and culinary excellence. A portion of proceeds for all events will go towards the West Hollywood Library Fund. More information and tickets are available online at www.AvenuesWH.com/events/tasteart.
