The Factory Kitchen is the first concept from the FactoryPlaceHospitalityGroup that opened to high acclaim on October 31st, 2013.<br /> Helmed by Restaurateur Matteo Ferdinandi, his wife Sommelier – Beverage Director Francine Diamond - Ferdinandi and their longtime friend and Partner Executive Chef Angelo Auriana, the Factory Kitchen re-defined the approach and the experience to casual dining in the city by combining elements of culinary arts, service, and design.<br /> A traditional Italian Restaurant & Bar in the heart of the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles, the Factory Kitchen culinary concept focuses on local recipes from the Northern Italian Regions; but emphasizes on some Ligurian traditional dishes like Mandilli di Seta al Pesto alla Genovese and the Focaccina Calda al Formaggio di Recco.<br />

"Overall, I would say my experience was disappointing. Having read some terrific reviews, my expectations were high. However our starter which was the clams and mussels in a spicy broth or Brodetto, came sans mussels. The management of offered a replacement of the dish, which had the mussels but was minus the spicy broth. The pasta, Paccheri, was excellent as was the Sogliola which is the whole Dover Sole deboned table side. Dessert was also a disappointment, a gelato, cherry, meringue, mess that was instantly forgettable. Service was excellent as the setting is lively and happening. All in all a mixed bag."
