Dune and Elf Bring Vegetable-Forward Cuisine to Northeast L.A.

Founded by Scott Zwiezen, Evan Haros, and Astara Calas, Elf is the last remnant of the late ’90s/early 2000s Northeast L.A. vibe, when neighborhood haunts weren’t just places to be seen on Instagram. The team also runs Dune, a falafel and Middle Eastern restaurant based in Atwater Village and downtown Los Angeles.
