According to the LAT:
I have a hard time believing that they are serving 25 courses for $120… at $4.80/dish the gamble to hit at least a few interesting winners seems worth taking.
They also apparently will offer some type of reverse omakase service at the counter where you can name ingredients you feel like eating, and they will compose dishes based off of them for you according to an interview with the chef:
[Quote]Lee and his staff will give diners a couple of options for lunch and dinner. You can choose one of the restaurant’s tasting menus, or the staff will also design bespoke a la carte dishes for each guest, based on their likes and dislikes, and the proteins and ingredients available in the kitchen that day.
“Imagine ‘Cheers,’ but as a fine-dining restaurant,” said Lee. “You are going to sit down and talk to the chef and the cook like you would at a sushi bar.”[/Quote]
Anyone actually been out there? It kind of seems overly ambitious, sort of “too good to be true” vibe, but who knows.
I ate at the old Scratch Bar when it first opened and don’t remember a lot about the meal. I think bone marrow in a “log” of bread was ok, and the squid in a box was pretty tasty. But the concept seems appealing enough to give a shot maybe.
What do the other gourmands think?
