Jordan Kahn

Chef Jordan Khan The dining room of Red Medicine in Beverly Hills, CA

Though only 27, Jordan Kahn has already worked in America’s most elite kitchens, including Thomas Keller’s French Laundry and Per Se. His inventive pastry signature under Keller’s tutelage brought him to Alinea in Chicago. From there, we followed him to Michael Mina’s eponymous flagship in San Francisco and watched him expand his horizons to work in a corporate role as pastry chef, helping to open additional Michael Mina restaurants across North America. We lucked out when he returned again to the pastry kitchen at Mina’s XIV in Los Angeles, where we could enjoy his creativity and watch him develop his talents at each of the many meals we had there. Combining restaurateur experience with his visionary gastronomy, Kahn recently opened his first restaurant with partners Adam Fleishman and Noah Ellis in Los Angeles called Red Medicine, self-styled as a “Vietnamese canteen.” Here Kahn lets his imagination springboard off the flavors of Southeast Asia to create dishes that are post-fusion, challenging the very boundaries of flavors as a true culinary revolutionary of the 21st century.
