800 Wilshire Group joins up with FilmingLocations.com

Both Provecho Restaurant and Remedy Lounge are available for on location filming

Los Angeles, June 19, 2009 - Two of Los Angeles’ newest hotspots are now available for filming at FilmingLocations.com. Provecho Restaurant and Remedy Lounge both opened at the end of 2008 and are located at 800 Wilshire Boulevard in downtown Los Angeles.

800 Wilshire is as small restaurant group started by Gabe Morales, who is also one of the most experienced and well respected chefs in the Los Angeles area. As both the CEO and Executive Chef at Provecho, Morales is making his freshly opened venues available for filming in Los Angeles.

“Remedy would be really good for a few types of filming, but beer commercials in particular because it’s a lounge and a bar,” says Morales. “We have already done some small projects in Provecho with a fashion company. They shot behind the 30 foot water wall that separates the dining room and the kitchen.”

800 Wilshire is also desirable location for filming because of its closeness in proximity to The Staples Center, Disney Hall and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Provecho is a Mexican restaurant that Morales created with the idea of taking old school Latin recipes and the Mexican food that people are used to in Los Angeles, and taking it back to its roots and modernizing it – distinguishing the difference between Mexican food and Mexican cuisine. Both Provecho and Remedy are participating in the Angeleno Magazine “Cocktail Tour” in July.

Morales himself is no stranger to the camera, nor is he a stranger to being around all kinds of celebrities. He has cooked for them all having come from The Beverly Hills Hotel, along with almost his whole cooking staff.

Morales has been involved in a few episodes of the HBO show Entourage, and has also appeared on numerous television spots including the Fine Living Channel.

“I always offer to do craft services because we can cook anything people want,” says Morales.

Morales was previously a chef at Republic, the Beverly Hills Hotel, Boa Steakhouse and the Four Seasons Beverly Hills.
