Profile: Chef Gloria Felix

Occasionally, I get to profile members of the gay community who have made their mark in Los Angeles, like my recent piece on Michael Ferrera, the head of Lifeworks Mentoring.

This month, for the Dining Issue of Frontiers IN/LA, I profiled Chef Gloria Felix, who recently opened her own restaurant in Silverlake, Reservoir. I reviewed the restaurant on in August, and had the chance to stop back by to talk to Felix one-on-one about her culinary training, her commitment to the gay community, and the perils and triumphs of opening one's own business. Also, I think this photo from her stint on Hell's Kitchen is pretty awesome!
