Meet the Team: Amy Knoll Fraser

As Vibiana’s Managing Partner Amy Knoll Fraser oversees her talented event management staff to insure that every event at Los Angeles’ premier venue is exceptional for every client and guest.

Amy is a veteran of the Los Angeles restaurant scene.  She opened her first restaurant, the critically acclaimed and award winning Grace, with her partner Chef Neal Fraser in 2003 and their second, the ever popular breakfast, lunch and dinner cafe BLD, in 2006. In late 2012 Knoll Fraser, Chef Fraser, Los Angeles restaurateur Bill Chait and their partners took over operations of Vibiana. Knoll Fraser has successfully merged the Fraser’s distinct hand-crafted approach to food, beverage, and service with the beauty and history of one of the city’s most stunning architectural gems. She and her team have developed and implemented an extensive dining and craft libations program and have upgraded the facility with a state of the art lighting and sound system, sound abating drapery and high quality and custom rental equipment. In addition to events at the facility, Amy and her partners will open Redbird, the Fraser’s follow up to Grace, in the rectory building adjacent to the Main Hall in the fall of 2014.

Also in the works for Knoll Fraser and her partner Chef Neal Fraser is ICDC – an ice cream, doughnut, coffee shop – with their longtime pastry chef, Mariah Swan.

An Intimate Vibiana Dinner

We were thrilled to host five very intimate event planner dinners in our newly designed Vibiana 3rd floor kitchen.  Chef Neal Fraser prepared a variety of delicious appetizers, dinner courses and desserts for each special evening to give our guests a taste of our new Vibiana menu.

Vibiana has been beautifully transformed into a stunning full service event facility with a state of the art lighting and sound system, high quality, custom rental equipment, a seasoned and talented event management staff, and an extensive dining and craft libations program, and we were more than happy to share these changes with some of our favorite LA partners and planners.

A very special thank you to Wisteria Lane Flower Shop for the beautiful centerpieces, Designer Speciality Linens for the table linens, Copper Willow for the invitations and  Krista Mason for capturing one of these Vibiana planner dinners.
