Jason Travi Goes to Work with Jeffrey Best

Former Fraiche chef Jason Travi is back after leaving Riva and taking a short sabbatical. Feast reports the chef’s hire by Jeffrey Best, owner of Studio City’s Firefly, Mesa in O.C., and Darkroom on Melrose. Besides the more desirable location, Darkroom–currently a bar–is in the midst of building a kitchen, making it likely Travi could be cooking there after revamping the menus at Best’s other restaurants.
