As Wilshire’s Executive Chef since 2008, Andrew Kirschner’s contemporary urban cuisine menu is firmly grounded in classic technique. His seasonal menu is defined by simplicity and balance and shows his diversity with market-based ingredients. In addition to Wilshire’s weekly menu, Kirschner also features a selection of wood-grilled prime steaks with a variety of house-made sauces and side dishes.
Wilshire has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, Angeleno, Food & Wine and Bon Appetit and was voted as one of the top 75 restaurants in the city by Los Angeles magazine. Kirschner recently received a nomination as a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation Best Chef Pacific 2010; in 2008, he appeared as guest chef to a sold out dinner at the James Beard House in Greenwich Village. This fall he will be honored as a participant in Outstanding in the Field, a nation-wide roaming culinary dinner series that partners diners to the land and the origins of their food, thereby honoring the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it. In 2008, Chef Kirschner was awarded Best New Chef by Angeleno and received a coveted 3 star review from S. Irene Virbila from the Los Angeles Times. He was the 2009 winner of Soyjoy’s Earth Day Culinary Competition, Battle of the Chefs: Eco-Cuisine, a live cooking competition with notable chefs.
Wilshire’s superb wine list was sited as one of the “Best New American Wine Lists” by Food & Wine magazine in 2006 and lists 250 selections, including organic and biodynamic offerings. The restaurant actively supports local, organic, and sustainable purveyors and utilizes practices that promote energy conservation and a better quality of life for the community, such as the use of recyclable building materials and the use of biodegradable containers. The restaurant was honored with a Grand Prize in the city of Santa Monica’s 2007 Sustainable Quality Awards.
