Chef Sevan Abdessian

Chef Sevan Abdessian is a seasoned veteran of the culinary world. He became aware of his passion for food at a young age learning from his mother and tasting her recipes. To learn the craft, he attended the Culinary Institute in San Francisco and honed his skills at five star restaurants in the area such as Rubicon. He eventually moved back to Los Angeles to work at Patina restaurant with Chef Joachin Splichal. These experiences showed him the true rigors of the restaurant world and taught him the value of perseverance and resiliency along with many cooking skills. He transferred these skills into a more personal world when he became a private chef for celebrities such as Adam Sandler, Rod Stewart, John Travolta and many others. In 2009 he was inspired to open his own restaurant so he could realize the ideas and vision he had developed about food and its role in a community and family. He found an old brick building in a quiet corner of Glendale, Ca. built in 1929 which originally housed a diner. He lovingly restored it back to its original use and thus Recess Eatery was born. What began as a simple neighborhood family friendly eatery has evolved into a gem of restaurant serving modern American fare. Chef Sevan combines elements of flavors from his childhood with fresh ingredients to create sophisticated epicurean delights. Now he brings that vision to Highland Park, Ca. into another brick building built in 1929. Chef Sevan believes that good food and a pleasant environment bring people together to connect in ways no other medium could accomplish. CHEF SEVAN
