Black Flour is the creation of a husband-and-wife team,
Marie Ravel and Jamie Young
Marie and Jamie moved to Los Angeles from Paris two years ago seeking to continue their adventure in the restaurant business in what they felt was the most exciting culinary environment in the world. They spent months looking for the perfect spot to open Black Flour as a brick and mortar restaurant; traversing LA with their real estate agent visiting available shops in neighborhoods from Venice Beach to Culver City; from Silverlake to Downtown LA. While Marie discovered a new city, Jamie rediscovered an ever-changing landscape so diverse, vital and dynamic that they both came to the conclusion that choosing a single location would be inconceivable. They started to throw around the idea of building their business out of a food truck that could change locations and establish the Black Flour name throughout the sprawling jumble that makes up Los Angeles.
