Viet Pham
Executive Chef - Ray’s and Stark Bar

Viet Pham, has been with Ray’s and Stark Bar since it opened in 2011. Assuming the executive chef role in spring of 2014, Pham has channeled the artistic energy of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art by pursuing his vision of culinary expressionism. Pham prioritizes using seasonal ingredients, capitalizes on the restaurants garden located on campus, as well as from distinctive California vendors. “We are blessed to have a forager who travels from farm to farm, picking out the best products at their peak of the season” Pham describes “Dragon,” the restaurant’s elite forager. Having the access to these ingredients, Pham is inspired to explore their capabilities and put them on display for the public.

Pham grew up learning to balance flavors alongside his mother. This relationship inspired the importance of creativity and skillfully working with his hands. Pham took this inspiration and pursued a career in the culinary field. After graduating from the California School of Culinary Arts in Pasadena in 2006, he began his career at Casey’s restaurant. He also sought out an opportunity to work with at Bouchon in Yountville under Chef Philip Tessier. It was Bouchon that sparked Pham’s passion for a farm to table philosophy. “It is an amazing feeling to pick a radish from the French Laundry garden, wash it, cook it and then serve it to a guest” says Pham. He spent three months in the Philippines for a restaurant consulting project prior to joining the opening team at Ray’s and Stark Bar. “I immediately felt welcomed to the Patina Restaurant Group family,” he says. “Joachim Splichal inspired me to be focused and brought together an amazing opening team. That collaborative atmosphere is a large part of why I’ve worked here so long.”
