Jennyfer Rodgers and Chef Al Gordon have created Community — a “come in jeans” neighborhood restaurant located in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz. The restaurant is a gathering place for a relaxed and friendly meal, or an intimate dinner party with great food and good company. The space looks and feels like someone’s cozy dining room – a place where one can enjoy the comforts of visiting a friend’s home. At Community we cook things that make us happy, like fried chicken and cornbread, mac &cheese or a nostalgic Chinese Chicken Salad, circa 1992. The dining room embodies a charming Brooklyn-esque charm, with about 25 communal seats. Community is a dedication to belonging and being part of the neighborhood you live in – to creating a place where we’d like to enjoy with friends.
