Our My Life at The Ritz series takes a look at the extraordinary individuals who call The Ritz-Carlton Residences at L.A. LIVE home. Today we profile one of the region’s most successful restauranteurs and wealth managers, Kerry Moy (above).
Kerry Moy is a restaurateur, portfolio manager/financial advisor, and accomplished musician, who owns a dozen restaurants across Southern California, including Downtown LA’s Le Ka (6th St. and Flower St.) and Green Hut Oyster Bar (808 West 7th St.). His home at The Ritz-Carlton Residences at L.A. LIVE, which he purchased nearly a year ago, has an open, contemporary feel and features stunning black oak floors, walls of windows and an impressive collection of artwork. The 1,303-square-foot “sanctuary,” as he once called it, is east facing and overlooks the STAPLES Center, L.A. LIVE and the residential tower’s rooftop pool.
