LA Weekly's Description

Chef Michael Voltaggio is famously an advocate of modernist cuisine, as driven by technique as by ingredients, and overall by the imperative of originality. His dish of young turnips and radishes is clearly inspired by the gargouillou of Michel Bras, a touchstone dish of modernist cuisine embraced by chefs like René Redzepi and David Kinch, but his version is subtly different: The lightly cooked vegetables are planted in the coffee-cardamom soil, sure, there's the requisite jellied underlayer (flavored here with nasturtium) and heaps of frozen yogurt transformed into powder snow in a Pacojet, but the composition seems his own.

    Ink, the new restaurant by 'Top Chef' champion Michael Voltaggio, features cutting-edge cuisine that is exciting and very much the chef's unique vision.

    Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio is showing his might with restaurant ink., which features "modern Los Angeles-style cuisine" as well as an omakase bar.

    Best of LA 2012 - Best Culinary Cocktails. Bartenders keep up with chef Michael Voltaggio's penchant for highly conceptual, designer food with a list of designer drinks.Try the Cold Brew, it's badass!

    Banh Mi Sammie FTW.. No seriously, I'm Vietnamese and I like it a LOT!! (Get some pork rinds & crab chips for good measure too ^^)

  • Los Angeles Times on 06/06/13

    Michael Voltaggio agonizes over every gram of sea-bean chimichurri on the beef tartare, every plate of potato charcoal with crème fraîche and every scoop of wood-smoke ice cream that leaves the line.
