Violet Bistro is the work of Dana Slatkin, a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef, cookbook author, food blogger and cooking class instructor in Los Angeles. She trained in France with Michelin Three-Star chefs and soon after moved to Los Angeles working at L’Orangerie. She also founded the Beverly Hills Farmers Market nearly 25 years ago. Violet Bistro is a vibrant Cali-French bistro, full bar, cooking school and shop in the heart of Westwood Village. In the spirit of European cafés and cookery schools, Violet Bistro aims to bring together the community over memorable meals and culinary adventures. We are excited to introduce Dana to the members of Town & Gown!
