“Dodgers fans know we’ve added more fresh, locally-inspired dining options over the last few seasons, and the Chef Series builds on that focus with a true taste of LA’s restaurant community,” said Ryan Evans, Executive Chef for Levy at Dodger Stadium. “We’re fortunate to have some amazing, iconic restaurants and neighborhood joints are breaking through in a big way. We wanted Chef Series to showcase both those recognizable, craved flavors, and up-and-coming restaurants with really unique concepts.”
