Cassia is a critically-acclaimed Southeast Asian brasserie that’s a partnership between husband-and-wife Chef Bryant Ng & Kim Luu-Ng and Rustic Canyon Family Co-Owners Josh Loeb & Zoe Nathan.
Taking its roots from Bryant and Kim’s culinary heritage and experiences, Cassia celebrates the fresh, vibrant flavors of Southeast Asia, striking a unique balance of soulful, ancestral cuisine and a California sensibility, utilizing the best quality ingredients from local farmers. General Manager & Sommelier Marianna Caldwell’s comprehensive wine list encompasses an intriguing, global selection of small production, planet-friendly wines that pair beautifully with the vibrant and spiced cuisine, while Bar Manager Jiayu Liu’s fun cocktails incorporate Southeast Asian flavors and seasonal ingredients.
Since opening in 2015, Cassia has earned media attention from the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Bon Appétit, GQ and more, along with a James Beard semifinalist nomination for “Outstanding Restaurant” in 2023 and “Best New Restaurant” in 2016, and Michelin Plate recognition in 2021 and 2022. Bryant was also a 2022 James Beard finalist for “Best Chef – California” and a semifinalist in 2017.
