About Steve Samson

Wanting to return to his hometown, Steve Samson partnered with his wife, Dina Samson, and Zach Pollack to open Sotto in 2011. Sotto achieved immediate acclaim, being named one of Esquire Magazine's “Best New Restaurants in America” and Los Angeles Magazines #1 “Best New Restaurant". After four years, Sotto remains as popular as ever, largely because Chef Steve has remained committed as ever to tradition and craft.
