About Chef Javier Lopez
Javier Lopez came to cooking early in life, cooking dinners at home with his mother at the age of 11. Having fallen in love with food at an even younger age, and wanting to have a creative outlet that brought comfort to others, Javier knew he wanted a career in the kitchen. After attending culinary school, Javier decided to pursue a practical approach to learning, and sought out a stage, finding one at the Jonathan Club, where he was a keen hands-on student. After the Jonathan Club he found work at Joe’s in Venice, fabricating meats and fish, followed by Michael Mina’s XIV in Hollywood, where he became poissonier, and then meat cook. After leaving XIV, Javier began working at La Seine, chef Alex Reznick’s kosher fine-dining restaurant, where he found the discipline of keeping dairy and meat products completely separate both challenging and fun. It was at La Seine that Javier met Reznick’s friend Vartan Abgaryan, who invited him to join him at Public Kitchen and Bar at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. When Abgaryan left to take the reins at Cliff’s Edge Restaurant in Silver Lake, Javier went with him and became his Chef de Cuisine there. After three years, they both left Cliff’s Edge to work on the opening of 71Above, a soon-to-be destination fine dining restaurant atop the US Bank Tower in Downtown Los Angeles. In the two-and-a-half years since opening, 71Above has become one of Los Angeles most celebrated restaurants, securing a coveted place on the late, great Jonathan Gold’s ‘101 Best Restaurants in Los Angeles’ in the Los Angeles Times in 2017. Javier was named Executive chef at 71Above at the beginning of February 2018.
