Plan Check Kitchen + Bar has multiple neighborhood restaurants located in Los Angeles, serving modern American comfort with unique cocktails, premium whiskeys and craft beers. Each location features unique dishes inspired by the neighborhoods they reside in. You’ll also find all of our classics at all locations. Founded by Terry Heller in the West Los Angeles neighborhood of Japantown in 2012, Plan Check locations now span from the beach to downtown: Santa Monica, West LA and Downtown.
The Plan Check name and brand stem from the first location, adjacent to the Building and Safety Department, where hundreds of Architects, Developers, Designers and Engineers flock daily to get plans reviewed for permitting. It embodies the architectural/creative lifestyle and the culture that surrounds it, effortlessly blending vintage architectural office elements with industrial pieces, rich materials and a warm atmosphere.
Plan Check Kitchen + Bar is also the home of Ketchup Leather™. This innovative square of deliciousness makes the Plan Check signature burger unique–not only does it add great flavor, it also prevents the burger buns from getting soggy! One might never think about ketchup the same way again. Try this inventive slice of deliciousness in our PCB (Plan Check Burger) or our Chef’s Favorite Burger.
