Celebrity chef Curtis Stone is pushing into a new Downtown restaurant space alongside his brother Luke Stone. The pair co-own the popular Gwen in Hollywood, and now will coordinate on a sprawling restaurant space in the historic Trust Building at West 4th Street and Spring.

The unnamed new restaurant is still far from completion, but reps for the Stones and partners Cultivate Hospitality Group, a hospitality consulting firm, and Rising Realty Partners, say that the 4,000 square foot restaurant should open sometime late next year.

As for the space itself, the restaurant will follow the same Art Deco template as the 1928-built Trust Building, which has been overhauled with a variety of redone retail and office spaces, much like the rest of Downtown. Peter Peterson, managing partner of Cultivate, called the property “one of Downtown LA’s greatest historic buildings” in a statement sent to Eater.

Curtis Stone already operates Michelin-starred Maude in Beverly Hills, as well as meat-centric daytime cafe and evening steakhouse Gwen with brother Luke Stone. The pair tell Eater that the Downtown restaurant will be distinct from both, but that they have not formalized a menu yet. Expect something in the last quarter of 2020.

The blocks of Spring Street south of City Hall lagged behind other parts of the Historic Core in downtown’s economic recovery of the last two decades.

But now the area is experiencing a burst of real estate development expected to bring tourists, residents and office workers to the neighborhood, long associated with urban decay.
