Minh Phan’s Phenakite is a modern, fine dining restaurant with the most heartfelt and innovative cuisine in Los Angeles. Your experience is expertly curated by Phan and her team.

“Chef Minh Phan’s Phenakite takes up residence at a co-working office space called Second Home Hollywood, nestled among trees and within a beautifully maintained structure built by the pioneering architect, Paul R. Williams. Named after a rare crystal, this ambitious restaurant debuted in the midst a global health crisis and its—utterly romantic—setting reflects as much with dining being entirely outdoors—at curvaceous tables arranged under a blanket of garden lights.”

“Since our inception in 1984, Tom of Finland Foundation has been an ever-expanding and driving force in the international sphere of protecting, preserving, and promoting the erotic arts. In planning for the future of TOM’s Foundation, you are an essential component. Foremost, it is my hope that we share a common philosophy: The presence of Tom of Finland Foundation contributes to a more inclusive and diverse global culture that spreads the doctrine that we are all creations of Mother Earth and have our rightful place here on her planet.” -Durk Dehner, President and Cofounder, Tom of Finland Foundation
