Brandon Go’s original right -hand man, James, is now behind the counter at AR.
I don’t know why I find this so interesting, but I do.
The food was pretty great too.
1/2 Grilled 1/2 Fried Sea Bream
Chicken Thigh and Wings
Yaki Onigiri with very tasty Ume/Shiso
That’s some good intel! Haven’t been back there in a while
That’s so cool. He was so great…now I’m more inclined to roll over to WeHo Raku.
Is he in charge of the sashimi like Matt Weaver was? Or manning the grill?
There was a another guy doing the sashimi (Matt’s old post).
James was just to his right, filleting and prepping the whole fish for the grill or the fryer, and doing salads. I think he worked the stoves and grills a bit too.
It was the perfect place to eat, then take a 10 minute walk to the tiny Peppermint Club to see Dave Chappelle rip it up! Great night.
