The brainchild of Chef/Owner Phillip Foss, EL Ideas offers contemporary cuisine in a setting unlike any other. Offering only 24 seats, the dining room is situated inside of the kitchen and offers a relaxed setting not generally associated with restaurants serving cutting edge cuisine. Interaction with the chefs and fellow diners is welcome and it is very common for guests to join the chefs in the kitchen to ask questions, take photos, and discuss trends.
EL Ideas’ motto of ”Question Everything” pertains to the cuisine as much as it does to the environment in which it is served. The cuisine reflects the approach, whims, standards and experience developed by Chef Phillip Foss (Quilted Giraffe, Le Cirque, Lockwood) and Chef Matt Dubois (Castagna, Heathman, Crofton on Wells). Culinary ideas span from redefining known flavors to outside the box flavor pairings and methods of serving. Click here for some samples of our cuisine.
