Seasonal plates on Would Works boards in Santa Monica

Seasonal plates on Would Works boards in Santa Monica

Our boards are featured in Local Kitchen + Bar restaurant in Santa Monica. This is a cool new restaurant by the chef and owner of Thyme Café & Market, Maire Byrne. She loves working with makers and producers whose products have a story, so Would Works was a great fit for her new concept.

Local Kitchen + Wine Bar pairs small seasonal plates served on Would Works boards with exceptional wines and small batch cocktails. Try the cheeses served on our Charcuterie Board. The restaurant is focused on local producers and makers. In addition to Would Works’ locally finished boards, the restaurant also has Kenter Canyon Farm’s herbs and lettuces and Hobb’s seasonal market produce.

This large order provided five artisans with three days' work. This was our first large restaurant order, and it was a great experience. Our artisans were really excited to know their hand-finished work was going into a nice restaurant.

The pride our artisans feel when they know their work is going to be seen and enjoyed is a huge part of the sense of purpose our workshops provide.

In you are in Santa Monica, stop in at Local Kitchen + Bar to nibble on cheese or fresh produce on our Charcuterie Boards and our Everyday Boards.
