Sang Yoon is the chef and proprietor of Father’s Office gastropubs and Lukshon Restaurant in Culver City. Yoon worked with celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck at Chinois on Main before landing his first executive chef position at Michael’s in Santa Monica. Yoon was tasked with simultaneously running the New York kitchen and updating the 18-year old menu for the first time in the restaurant’s history. In 2000, Yoon struck out on his own with Father’s Office, which trailblazed the gastropub movement in L.A. and beyond. Yoon opened a second location in 2008 entitled Father’s Office 2.0 on the landmark Helms Avenue Walk in Culver City. February 2011 marked Yoon’s return to fine dining with the debut of Lukshon, a modern restaurant dedicated to traditional and creative Southeast Asian flavors, located adjacent to Father’s Office 2.0.
This fall marks the debut of the updated Helms bakery concept with partner Sherry Yard.
