Amy Knoll Fraser

Amy Knoll Fraser 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, BLD, in 2006. In 2012 Knoll Fraser, Chef Fraser and their partners took over operations of Vibiana. As Vibiana’s Managing Partner, Amy Knoll Fraser oversees her talented even management staff to ensure that every event at Los Angeles’ premier venue is exceptional for every client and guest. Knoll Fraser has successfully merged the Fraser’s distinct handcrafted 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, Knoll Fraser and her partners opened Redbird, the Fraser’s follow up to Grace, in the rectory building adjacent to the Main Hall in early 2015. Chef Neal Fraser and Amy Knoll Fraser’s flagship restaurant Redbird features Modern American cuisine that is refined yet approachable and highlights the multi-cultural influences of Fraser’s native city – Los Angeles. Designed Robert Weimer and Amy Knoll Fraser created a dynamic space that pays homage to the cathedral next door and the existing timeless architecture by inserting simple modern forms to complement rather than overtake the feel of the rooms. The result is a warm and comfortable considered space.

Most recently, Knoll Fraser and Fraser launched their fast-casual concept, Fritzi Coop. They currently have two locations, one at the Farmer’s Market at The Grove, and a second standalone restaurant in the Arts District.

Seven years ago, Knoll Fraser co-founded Beefsteak, an annual event benefiting the Los Angeles Food Bank with Simpson’s creator Matt Selman, comedian Eric Wareheim and comedy producer Cort Cass.

Knoll Fraser currently resides on the Los Angeles Food Policy Leadership Board, the California Restaurant Association Los Angeles Board, the Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) board, and is a charter member of the Dine LA Restaurant Week Advisory Board.
