LA/CM May 2012: Nguyen Tran of Starry Kitchen
The story of Starry Kitchen is a remarkable one. Nguyen Tran and his wife, Tri, opened Starry Kitchen in their apartment. They were serving amazing food and building a following. They became the #1 rated asian restaurant on Yelp, even ahead of the two-star michellin rated Urasawa. With popularity comes exposure and when you’re running an illegal restaurant you get shut down. Two years later and they’re happily serving hungry patrons out of their legal spot in downtown LA.
Nguyen is not your average restauranteur. He’s a social animal and has used grassroots marketing and social media to generate fanatical attention for his restaurant. He’s the consumate host and entertainer - often in costume and always engaging. His personality and his vision have made Starry Kitchen one of LA’s best lunch spots. We’re thrilled to have him be the first restauranteur to speak at CreativeMornings.
