Ryan Ballinger is the owner of The York gastropub in Highland Park. After moving to Los Angeles to become a writer, he found his calling as a bartender and manager, which led him to York Boulevard. The York, housed in a historic neighborhood building, is Ryan's response to a lack of restaurants and bars in the area. This establishment represents the transitioning neighborhood that is Highland Park, and he is featured in our "Reinterpreting Highland Park" chapter.
From the age of the Native Americans, through the birth of Arroyo Culture and Chicano activism, to the DIY ethos of today, Highland Park has always been a laboratory for new and emerging ways to be an Angeleno. MORE
