Yellow Fever is changing up the food and design scene with their Venice, CA location featuring Bend Goods!
With hundreds of restaurants popping up across Los Angeles at breakneck speed it can be a little overwhelming trying to choose where to eat on a daily basis. Luckily for Angelenos the plethora of options provides a plethora of varieties of cuisine. From Mexican to French to Vietnamese - we really do have the plenty to choose from! But of these options, there are only a few places that provide high quality food at accessible prices. Fortunately for us this is changing and restaurants like Yellow Fever are opening!
Yellow Fever is a pan asian, quick stop concept restaurant that serves adaptations of different Asian rice bowls using organic, non-GMO ingredients. Alongside the great food there is great design! We partnered with Yellow Fever for their Venice, CA location and designed custom Ethel bar stools to accompany their gorgeous yellow hued interior. The restaurant is chic, modern, and perfect for sunny So Cal!
Founder and Head Chef, Kelly Kim, wanted the restaurant to be comfortable and playful.
“We wanted it to be more “grown up” than our first location in Torrance; Minimal in design, embracing the long and skinny space we’ve inherited and having some artistic Venice features like our wall mural.” says Kim. When asked why she chose Bend for the space, Kelly emphasised her desire to support a small local business with products that stand up to constant use in a commercial space.
If you are ever in Venice, CA and want to grab a delicious quick bite to eat, check out Yellow Fever. We promise it won’t disappoint and neither will the chairs you’ll be sitting in!
