For all you Los Angeles locals out there, Chef Gavan Murphy aka The Healthy Irishman, has put together packages that will surely delight any recipient, including yourself! Whether you’re looking for a unique gift to give, looking to pamper yourself or looking for a new meaning of girls’ night/date night, we’re here to make it memorable with a personalized experience.

The nitty gritty….

Gavan Murphy is dedicated to using organic locally sourced produce as well as meat and seafood from local purveyors. Your menu will be customized according to the dining experience you wish to have. Seasonal menus will be created depending upon availability to ensure quality. Packages last about 3 hours depending upon how much fun we’re having. The Healthy Irishman does not provide beverages but can devise menus based on what you have in your cellar. Prices have a “starting at” price due to customized menus (perhaps you like caviar?) and travel length (air fare not included). Now you know the 411 so find the right package for you!
