Top Chef Michael Voltaggio’s sandwich shop seeks to satisfy multiple palates and cravings. The flavors are classic and created with the best available ingredients. The menu is short, sweet, and to the point, but the sandwiches are perfect for a quick lunch.

Best of LA 2012 - Best Culinary Cocktails. Bartenders keep up with chef Michael Voltaggio's penchant for highly conceptual, designer food with a list of designer drinks.Try the Cold Brew, it's badass!

Banh Mi Sammie FTW.. No seriously, I'm Vietnamese and I like it a LOT!! (Get some pork rinds & crab chips for good measure too ^^)

it's inventive, sure. but don't worry, not everything is covered in foam. i loved the pork and the lamp neck dishes.

Michael Voltaggio agonizes over every gram of sea-bean chimichurri on the beef tartare, every plate of potato charcoal with crme frache and every scoop of wood-smoke ice cream that leaves the line.

The apple desert was the winner, with the wood-smoke ice cream. The rest of the top chef winner's dishes were inventive and tasty, especially the "corn" with nori Doritos. Fancy cocktails, too.

Has to be one of my favorite meals of my life. I have been to Daniel, I have been to State Bird Provisions and this is the perfect combination of the two. Get the gnocchi, lambs neck, octopus. BOOM!

Stick toward the top of the menu, where the less-heavy dishes reside.

Pork rinds, always. Great selection of sodas. Perfect sandwich size, too.

Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggios arty penchant for molecular gastronomy doesnt distract from triumphs such as egg-yolk gnocchi, but it does make Ink as serious as its sexy, all-gray space.

Menu changes constantly, from this menu my favorite orders were wild salmon, egg yolk gnocchi, corn & wagyu beef cheek. Skip the desserts, didn't like any of them. Rhubarb cream soda is very good.

So many great small plates to try! The corn (corn, housemade doritos, nori, green onion) was a table favorite for sure!
