Red Medicine's Jordan Kahn Opens Super Serious Breakfast Spot in Culver City
Chef Jordan Kahn, who was last cooking at Red Medicine before it closed in late 2014, is back on the scene, having quietly opened a Culver City neo-coffee shop called Destroyer this week. The place is currently in soft opening mode, but some locals have already found their way in to enjoy the array of vegetable-heavy plates.
The stark space takes over at Hayden Tract, inside a corner industrial bit that offers lots of lights and little detail work. The pared-down aesthetic seems to mesh with Kahn’s sensibility, creating moody dishes that play well against the white backdrops and factory windows. The menu itself is just as inventive as the chef is known for from his Red Medicine days, and includes options like raw oatmeal for breakfast, seeded rye bread, and a take on avocado toast (naturally).
