RockSugar

RockSugar Pan Asian Kitchen is the first restaurant of it's kind in L.A.

An upscale casual destination from eminent restaurateur David Overton and Singapore-raised, New York-trained chef Mohan Ismail (Spice Market, Tabla, Blue Hill), RockSugar showcases the cuisines of Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and India. Drawing upon memories of family meals his mother made, chef Mohan folds in his vast culinary experience to bring together the exhilarating tastes of a half-dozen Southeast Asian nations.

Dishes are served Asian family-style to create an atmosphere that encourages sharing and conversation. ¬†RockSugar, which takes it’s name from an ingredient used by Asian chefs, features a full bar with an extensive wine list and exotic cocktails and an onsite bakery, where it creates fresh-made desserts that infuse French flair with Asian-influence.
