About Philip Pretty

Philip Pretty is one of the best chefs you never heard of in L.A., quietly cooking exceptional food at Fundamental in Westwood. A Long Beach native, Pretty jumped at the chance to work near home when he got an offer to partner with Dana and Rob Robertson, owners of Retro Row’s Restauration. And Long Beach’s culinary scene is very much the better for it.
