Matthew Allnatt — General Manager / COO
Matthew Allnatt’s mission is to ensure a consistently positive experience that begins with his unfailing ability to treat each visitor as a special person and is the reason Jonathan Club is being recognized as this month’s winner of the Crème de le Crème Award.
Matthew’s vision of what the Jonathan Club could be was making sure everything we do has a purpose and is meaningful. His unwavering support of health & wellness can be seen on the menus, the roof-top garden, in the community, in the workplace and as a mentor in the private club industry.
Matthew is one of 13 Founding Members of the Wellness Project™, the first certified Wellness Academies™, one of America’s Healthiest Clubs and is actively involved with supporting multiple charities including LA Works, Medals of Honor, Careers through Culinary Arts Program (CCAP) and Culinary Arts Kids Eat, to name a few.
The roof-top garden, for example, is as much about dedication to organic ingredients as it is a brand indicator for the members. As part of the club’s quest to source the best-quality ingredients, the club set up a 1,000-sq. ft. roof-top garden in 2010. Seven years later, those beds now yield a wide array of vegetables, including micro-greens, broccolini, baby carrots, yuzu, blueberries, figs, snap peas and heirloom tomatoes.
The rooftop garden yields as much as $150,000 worth of produce every year and is a way for the club to visually educate members, guests and young cooks about the quality the club provides and expects.
