Winston House – Come for the food and stay for the music!  Dinner is 6-late, Thurs.- Sun. with Mama’s Boy, an Italian, red neck, red sauce, Texas inspired menu.  

Make your reservations here

Mama’s Boy is an Italian dinner club with a Southern accent, brought to you by Michelin-starred Chef Wes Whitsell. Situated inside Winston House – a popular community hub with live music and DJ sets – Mama’s Boy is the perfect start to a night out. With lively dishes that embody Chef’s Texan roots and mom’s home-cooked Italian food, the menu strikes a balance between comfort and creativity. Whether you’re spending a night with friends, enjoying a family meal, or going on a first date, Mama’s Boy offers a place for anyone to come home.

The Mama’s Boy menu is Chef Wes’s culinary autobiography. A ‘Mama’s Boy’ from the start, Chef was shaped by a childhood where love was served on a plate. Raised in a family that celebrated food as the ultimate expression of affection, he learned early on the art of combining Italian flavors with his family’s Southern sensibility. His move to California further enriched his culinary perspective, connecting him with local family farms to ensure his dishes are seasonal and crafted with the best the garden can produce, earning a Michelin star for his work at Hatchet Hall.

At Mama’s Boy, he presents his most innovative menu yet: a fusion of nostalgic Italian cuisine with a Southern twist – a true ‘Spaghetti Western’. Each dish is a nod to his upbringing, a journey back home where every bite tells a story of love, tradition, and the connection of family.”

About Winston House:

Winston House began as a grassroots movement to bring more live music to Venice, CA. Before we had a name or knew what we were doing, we were throwing concerts in living rooms because it’s what we loved to do. The growth we’ve experienced over the last few years has blown us away and we’re grateful to every single person who has supported us.

“During the summer of 2015, I opened up my house to a group of young artists who were new to Venice, CA. They had moved from Oregon to pursue music and needed a place to crash. Having recently moved from the Pacific Northwest myself, I was familiar with showing up in a city not knowing anybody. People helped me when I moved to LA and I wanted to pay it forward. “Helping” started with giving couches, food & advice. Soon it turned into hosting shows where they could share their music and make friends.

In February 2016, we made a logo and called ourselves Winston House, named after my childhood dog. Since then, we’ve helped hundreds of emerging artists and had the privilege to work with some of the biggest artists in the world. You can see some of those artists here. Perhaps more than anywhere in the world, LA is a destination for people who are willing to leave their home, family & friends behind to pursue a passion. Trying to make it on your own is almost always an isolating and lonely experience.

Winston House is a home away from home for those people and anyone who loves music”.
