Gardner Junction

Taking inspiration from the location's transit past, the firm Spacecraft custom-designed Gardner Junction with elements of steampunk and a train motif, from the working clocktower that now sits guard over the intersection to the lanterns hanging over the bar to the low-slung ceilings in the dining room. Chef and owner Steve Brown's menu, like so many these days, takes a shared-plate format. It includes 20 dishes that rotate every six weeks depending on what he finds at the Santa Monica and Hollywood farmers markets. He also has started his own organic garden, visible from the dining room, on the neighboring property.
