Director of Operations, Los Angeles
Kari’s entry into the restaurant world was through the wine industry, where she worked as an importer of small production and boutique wines from around the world. Kari's passion soon turned to the restaurant industry, where she could blend her love of viticulture with food, service and design. Heather quickly became Kari’s mentor of all of these things, and together they opened The Butcher’s Daughter in Venice, the flagship location. Here, Kari personally selects each bottle of wine that appears in-house or on the shelves of our front market and wine shop.
