Mori Onodera at La Botte

Introducing “Chef2” Dual Culinary Performance: Italian and Japanese Styles Fuse, with Stefano De Lorenzo and Morihiro Onodera


Chef Stefano De Lorenzo of La Botte in Santa Monica welcomes legendary chef Morihiro Onodera for two special “Chef2” dinners on Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19. The Michelin-starred virtuosos will creatively meld innovative Italian cuisine with minimalist Japanese taste.


Come and join us at LaBotte’s new wine lounge, LAperitivo, where you can share a large table and choose with whom to break bread and pour wine. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the amazing four course tasting menu of contemporary Italian cuisine handcrafted by Chef Stefano.

The experience of the aperitivo is a consolidated Italian tradition. It gives you a chance to socialize and relax while snacking before dinner often spoiling dinner altogether!

“I can’t believe how lucky I am to be working in this beautiful forest, picking delicious foods to delight people’s palate” says Andre Kohler, who has been supplying Stefano De Lorenzo with foraged foods for the last three years. Andre recently attended the Mushroom Festival in Telluride Colorado to defend his Shroom Recipe Champion Chef title.
