Custom menu boards for Dominique Ansel's New L.A. Restaurant

We just completed 350 units of wine & cocktail boards, menu boards, and receipt presenters for the New York Chef's new bakery and restaurant, 189 by Dominique Ansel, at the Grove in Los Angeles.  

These pieces were sanded and skillfully stained by Would Works artisans to match the material pallet of the restaurant's interior (designed by Studio Unltd and Rossi Architecture) which includes expansive grey-washed wood, solid marble and fine brass details.

Not only do the boards match the interior design, but they also go great with the uniform of the impeccable wait staff--fitting perfectly into the front pocket of their attractive grey denim aprons.

We're honored to have our handmade products in this world class eating establishment. Thanks to all the hard work of our artisans and workshop leaders who cranked out this order with great speed and skill.

And thanks to Dominique Ansel for the incredible feast!  Bon Appetite!
