The Food Dudes’ flagship restaurant is the brainchild of founders Adrian Niman and Brent McClenahan, and the immensely talented Adam Minster (formerly Pangaea, Oliver & Bonacini, Bloke & Forth). Together, they envisioned the most relaxing environment in which to enjoy a meal and modeled Rasa on that ideal projection. The result is a space in which The Food Dudes’ culture of culinary quality and curiosity has fully come to life. The personality of the company can be felt within the space, where guests are sure to be wowed by the inventive fare the chef cooks up nightly. With every element of Rasa – from the chairs and tabletops to the beautiful bar, light and candle fixtures - handmade by The Food Dudes themselves, Rasa is the embodiment of our entire mission.
