The Gastro Garage

As seen on Bravo, Tavel Channel and Food Network, The Gastro Garage is a Los Angeles-based food concept that has traveled the world creating an interactive dinning experience and action station for events. The Gastro Garage's signature dish deconstructs classic sandwiches and dishes and reconstructs them into "The Gastro Tank.” A savory brioche style donut that has been blow torched, injected with nitrous foam, and topped with awesome torched finishings. The Gastro Garage has more than 50 different Tanks that range from Garlic Butter Poached Lobster Tails to S'Mores all created by skilled “Gastro Mechanics.” Gastro Garage has created experiences, doing pop-ups and events from L.A., to the Hamptons, to Abu Dhabi. The Gastro Garage has received numerous accolades in notable media outlets such as LA Magazine, E! News, Urban Daddy, Biz Bash, LA Weekly, Thrillist, LA Times and more. Since launching in 2014, the Mechanics have been torching for clients such as Ron Howard, Ryan Seacrest, Seth MacFarlane, Kate Hudson, Sean Penn, Charlize Theron, Sarah Silverman, Jon Favreau, Tim Allen, James Corden, Sylvester Stallone, and companies Google, Hulu, Microsoft, HBO, Paramount, Warner Bros., Sony, Disney, Insomniac and FOX’s American Idol to name a few.
