Jon Shook

Animal and Son of a Gun, Los Angeles

In a city where the scene is usually everything, self-taught chefs Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook are telling a different story at their acclaimed restaurants: one about smart, satisfying, and freewheeling food that earned Animal a spot on Bon Appétit's list of the most important restaurants in America.
