Crossroads, a fine-dining vegan hotspot in Los Angeles, is adding something new to its menu this winter. On December 15, chef/co-owner Tal Ronnen kicked off a new Sunday Supper series (5–10 P.M.; $80, $110 with wine pairings), which will run every week in collaboration with a range of visiting chefs.

“I started missing other foods that I used to cook,” says Ronnen of the inspiration behind the dinners. “The series allows me to deviate from our traditional Mediterranean menu.”

Each prix fixe is themed according to the guest chef’s expertise. Celebrity chef Art Smith’s inaugural southern-style tasting menu featured highlights like sweet-potato biscuits with maple butter and ricotta fried green tomatoes. Other notable chefs will include Theo Schoenegger of Sinatra (located in Encore at Wynn Las Vegas) and his classic Italian fare (February 16); Adam Fleischman of Umami Burger (February 23); and Ricardo Zarate (of Paiche, Picca and Mo-Chica in California), who will offer a Japanese-Peruvian–inspired spread (March 2).

And while the series will add diversity to the touted contemporary seasonal cuisine at Crossroads, it won’t abandon the eatery’s vegan ethos. “It gives people a chance to try plant-based dishes from a professional or highly respected chef or restaurateur who is not recognized for cooking this way,” says Ronnen. “It is a one-of-a-kind experience.” 8284 Melrose Ave.; 323-782-9245; crossroadskitchen.com.
