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

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!

Dear Friends and Supporters of Would Works,

Winding down this year, we express deep gratitude for your support and engagement with Would Works. 2023 began expansively: WW Community Builders Program Artisans and our team took a field trip to the snow-covered Angeles National Forest in the San Gabriel Mountains north of the city. Shirley is the Artisan Lead at Would Works and was born and raised in LA. She’s now in her mid-60’s, yet she’s never been up to the Angeles Forest. Our city is surrounded by abundant landscapes, but many residents who face barriers to employment also lack access to experiences in nature. This forest visit reflects the growth trajectory of Would Works, which we illuminate here.
