WHO: Ex­ec­u­tive Chef for

The Ex­change at brand-new

ho­tel The Free­hand (416 W. Eighth St., LA, 213-6120021; free­hand­ho­tels.com).

FAB COL­LABS: “The most ex­cit­ing part of work­ing at The

Ex­change is work­ing with so many smart and tal­ented peo­ple!” TWO BIG

OR­ANGES: “Be­ing from South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, it was def­i­nitely eye-open­ing when I moved to Mi­ami. One of the great qual­i­ties of that city is the warmth and kindness of all the peo­ple. We want to cre­ate that same at­mos­phere at The Ex­change.” L.A. INSPO:

“Spend­ing time out­side— whether it’s on the beach or in the moun­tains. I love to ex­plore all of LA’s eth­nic pock­ets and the great mo­mand-pop places. And of course, I love [restau­rant critic] Jonathan Gold!”
