The Raymond 1886 is celebrating summer in its own unique way by inviting Downtown L.A.’s Chef Michael Hung of Faith & Flower for a Five-Day Staycation at The Raymond 1886 beginning Tuesday, July 28th, 2020 and running through Saturday, August 1st.

Chef Michael Hung’s career credentials Traci Des Jardins’s James Beard Award-winning team at San Francisco’s Jardinière and Roland Passot’s Michelin-starred La Folie.

Chef Hung then opened Faith & Flower in Downtown Los Angeles, where the restaurant was honored “Best New Restaurant” by Esquire Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, and Travel + Leisure.

Hung’s success continued when he opened the highly-acclaimed Viviane in the Avalon Hotel Los Angeles and then he started his own company Ardour Hospitality in 2016, concentrating on full-service consulting, culinary and hospitality experiences in Greater Los Angeles.

Chef Hung will be offering a Five-Course Staycation Tasting Menu ($75 per person) to be enjoyed on any one of The Raymond 1886’s three patios.

Guests can also take Chef Hung’s flavorful Five-Course Staycation home by takeout or delivery. How’s that for a mid-week treat?

And as long as we’re on the subject of treats, Raymond 1886 Head Barman Jesus Gomez will also be offering a special Wine & Cocktail Pairing  ($20 per person) for guests dining on the premises.

In addition, there will also be a special selection of New 1886 Summer Cocktails, wines by the bottle and craft beer to accompany Chef Hung’s special menu for Takeout and Delivery.
