Top Chef Michael Voltaggio’s sandwich shop seeks to satisfy multiple palates and cravings. The flavors are classic and created with the best available ingredients. The menu is short, sweet, and to the point, but the sandwiches are perfect for a quick lunch.


  • Ink, the new restaurant by 'Top Chef' champion Michael Voltaggio, features cutting-edge cuisine that is exciting and very much the chef's unique vision.
  • Best of LA 2012 - Best Culinary Cocktails. Bartenders keep up with chef Michael Voltaggio's penchant for highly conceptual, designer food with a list of designer drinks.Try the Cold Brew, it's badass!
  • Michael Voltaggio agonizes over every gram of sea-bean chimichurri on the beef tartare, every plate of potato charcoal with crme frache and every scoop of wood-smoke ice cream that leaves the line.
  • Spicy tuna!
  • I really love the banh mi here.
  • Grab some food before they run out by the afternoon!
  • The apple desert was the winner, with the wood-smoke ice cream. The rest of the top chef winner's dishes were inventive and tasty, especially the "corn" with nori Doritos. Fancy cocktails, too.
  • Has to be one of my favorite meals of my life. I have been to Daniel, I have been to State Bird Provisions and this is the perfect combination of the two. Get the gnocchi, lambs neck, octopus. BOOM!
  • Try the banh mi, maple-pepper turkey, and jose andres.
  • Pork rinds, always. Great selection of sodas. Perfect sandwich size, too.
  • Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggios arty penchant for molecular gastronomy doesnt distract from triumphs such as egg-yolk gnocchi, but it does make Ink as serious as its sexy, all-gray space.
  • Menu changes constantly, from this menu my favorite orders were wild salmon, egg yolk gnocchi, corn & wagyu beef cheek. Skip the desserts, didn't like any of them. Rhubarb cream soda is very good.
  • So many great small plates to try! The corn (corn, housemade doritos, nori, green onion) was a table favorite for sure!
  • Mint cucumber soda and hamachi!
  • The octopus is to die for, a must have.
  • Fantastic inventive dishes. Highly recommend kale lollipop, egg yolk gnocchi, shishito peppers.
  • one of my favorite restaurants hands down. creative dishes and awesome for sharing. go on a weekday to ensure a spot!
  • if they're still available, you absolutely must try the lamb, foie gras and pork belly dishes! cocktails are amazing too
  • There are a million banh mis in America nowadays, but this particular version from Top Chef champ Michael Voltaggio is outstanding. You must try the Chicharrnes Banh Mi!
  • it's inventive, sure. but don't worry, not everything is covered in foam. i loved the pork and the lamp neck dishes.
