About The Sequestered Chef

We’re Liz and Chef Alex and we created The Sequestered Chef, a mash-up of a take-out restaurant and a caterer, born during the shutdown of 2020


When all restaurants closed due to the pandemic, many of our elderly neighbors were afraid to go grocery shopping. We began making meals for them and their reactions were inspiring. 

Word began to spread about this "great chef around the corner" and we just started growing. Now we've become a full blown catering  company with a dedicated following and new clients every day.

We still offer meals for pick-up which is great for family dinners, date night, smaller gatherings or just a 5-star meal without any clean up.


Order the day before and pick up your food the following day between 11am-8am. We are located in the Melrose/Fairfax area of Los Angeles.  Pick up instructions are below.

For larger events, give us a call and we will create custom menus for you that will make your gathering really special. Delivery and set up available for catering orders.​
