Brian Malarkey_Approved

To say that Chef Brian Malarkey knows a thing or two about food is a wild understatement. In just three years, Malarkey and business partner James Brennan have created eight successful restaurants across the United States. The restaurant group, Enlightened Hospitality, includes Searsucker (San Diego, Del Mar, Austin), Herringbone La Jolla, Green Acres (San Diego) and his latest effort, Herringbone Los Angeles at the Mondrian West Hollywood. In addition to his career as a chef and restaurateur, Malarkey has also starred as a judge/mentor on ABC’s cooking competition show The Taste alongside Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson and Ludo Lefebvre. He is also a past Top Chef finalist and has starred in series on TLC, Travel Channel, Bravo, OWN and more. Malarkey headlines food and wine festivals across the country with cooking demos and book signings of his most recent cook book, “Come Early, Stay Late.” Here is this celebrity chef’s insiders guide to the City of Angels.
