Executive chef Rahm Fama's career has rocketed him from his mother's cattle ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico, to the limelight of his Food Network TV series Meat & Potatoes. Still, he has not forgotten the herds that helped him get where he is today, and he keeps those memories close while leading Culture 22. An ardent devotee of carnivore-pleasing cuisine, chef Rahm stocks his menu with porterhouses, bacon-topped burgers, and seafood.
Peppercorn-crusted 12-ounce new york steak au poivre bathes in a cognac sauce, and a dozen oysters paired with inventive dipping sauces from the raw bar set taste buds out to sea. Rahm's Famous New Mexican–style green-chile burger imbues a half-pound of beef with the piquant flavors of his native state, accompanied by french fries that, like wooden boards in a martial-arts studio, are hand-cut. As diners divvy up jumbo cocktail shrimp, servers ferry cocktails and beer to ebony four-top tables set aglow by chandelier and candle lighting.
Despite its worldly name, Children Sports International is fiercely community- focused. Its 100% model ensures that every donated dollar goes toward funding youth-fitness and afterschool-sports programs—and that every staff member is a local volunteer. Founder Danny Vasquez has lived his life in Los Angeles, and he sees sports as a way to inspire hope and improve health among the underserved children in his community. He and his volunteer staff work with kids aged 6–18 to get hearts pumping during age-appropriate activities that enhance physical fitness as they increase self-esteem. However, Children Sports International isn't all about athletics: in 2012, the organization spearheaded the Be the Solution to Ocean Pollution program, during which teams of volunteers and local kids helped beautify their community by cleaning up stretches of Venice Beach and Long Beach.
