Ever wonder who the brainchild and money behind some of Los Angeles’ most famous restaurants and nightclubs is? Meet Adolfo Suaya, Hollywood restaurateur, socialite, and a man well versed in ‘all things restaurant, real estate and business.’
Suaya’s successes include snatching up high-end pieces of real estate in countries such as Uruguay, where his boutique hotel (and celebrity hotspot) Casa Suaya resides. Here in the States, Suaya is better known for his role as being a “man about town.” Suaya moved to LA in 1982 and quickly made a name for himself in the LA restaurant scene 4 years later with the opening of Gaucho Grill. By 1996, he had 16 Gaucho Grills in operation.
Having carved out a rather lucrative niche for himself, Adolfo now boasts an array of successful restaurants and nightclubs that stretch from the east ends of Hollywood, through the infamous Cahuenga Corridor district, and down to the west area of Hollywood Boulevard. Past, present and future projects include Memphis, Dolce, Bella Cucina, The Lodge, Goa, Zen Grill, Bar Deluxe, BoHo, the surely Goat and the soon to open Osaka, Suaya’s high-end Japanese-Peruvian dining concept.
