Short bio: In July 2014, Jeremy Fall decided to branch out on his own and launched Genesis, a five-week pop-up concept that bridged the gap between bar and nightclub, hidden inside a vintage attic in Hollywood. After garnering a lot of press and attention, Fall decided to extend Genesis to a six-month period before moving it to a new and permanent location in Hollywood. In November 2014, he opened his second project, Golden Box, a 1980’s NYC-inspired grungy disco designed after his strong inspirations from Area, Studio 54 and The Limelight.
Following his continued passion for hospitality, Fall came up with the idea of his first restaurant, Nighthawk: Breakfast Bar, a restaurant/bar that serves cocktails and elevated breakfast fare for dinner. Being as it was a first of its kind concept, Nighthawk garnered a lot of national media attention, landing on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and making Eater’s list of “hottest restaurants in America.” Fall’s knack for coming up with innovative ways to build original concepts led to the creation of his second food endeavor, Tinfoil: Liquor & Grocery, a modern day take on the bodega consisting of a liquor store in the front with a secret “speakeasy” deli in the back. He decided to bring on a group of fine dining-trained chefs to the project in order to help him create a menu of house-cured meats, sandwiches and sides completely made from scratch. His nest creation and first national restaurant expansion opened in November 2017 as Nighthawk: AM, a fast casual breakfast all day concept in Chicago, IL, inspired by the nostalgic 1950’s American milk bar.
Fall’s current project pipeline includes Paperboy, a new innovative take on the classic pizza joint in partnership with United Talent Agency (UTA) located on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica set to open early 2018. His other highly anticipated is Easy’s, a reinterpretation of the classic diner located inside the iconic Beverly Center slated to open Spring 2018.
