Chef Chris Oh Collaborates With Cassell’s and K Pop Foods

Chef Chris Oh Collaborates With Cassell’s and K Pop Foods

It’s the holiday season, and while most of us may be thinking about the extravagant homemade meals we can look forward to pretty soon, Los Angeles abides by different rules. Sure, you can think about that experimental casserole you want to surprise your family with, but do that while you chow down on prestigious grub from some of L.A.’s finest chef’s! With just days to go before everyone has officially checked out for the holidays, there are only 4 days left of Cassell’s Hamburgers’ 70th Anniversary celebration featuring pop ups and collaborations — and only one day to experience the otherworldly talent of Chef Chris Oh.

This Sunday, December 8th, at 3 p.m., Chef Oh will work in collaboration with Chef Christian PageK Pop Foods, and Cassell’s to feature their delicious monstrosity of a creation, the K Town Burger Extravaganza. A house-made beef patty topped with galbi jjim (braised beef short ribs), flame-torched mozzarella, sweet & salty pickles, and red onions — all resting upon a savory layer of K Pop Foods’ very own Kimchi Mayo — and sandwiched between a black and white sesame-riddled bun. In the food world, this is the ultimate K Town rep, but it won’t be around forever!

What’s even more exciting about Cassell’s 70th Anniversary Celebration is that the restaurant will donate $1 for every anniversary menu item sold, and $3 for every bottle of wine sold to No Kid Hungry. Eat good, do good, and feel good, all at once. It’s the perfect holiday event to get you out while also giving back, and supporting a good cause. Though this Cassell’s Hamburgers, Chef Chris Oh, and K Pop Foods collaboration will only be around for one day, the anniversary celebration doesn’t end until December 10th. You’ve got plenty of time (or a lack of it) to stop by for a delicious meal that simultaneously supports children who need delicious meals of their own. CO-WRITTEN BY  ANTHONY C. STAFFORD

Bon Temps Launches Full-Service Lunch with Chef Lincoln Carson

Bon Temps Launches Full-Service Lunch with Chef Lincoln Carson

There’s lunch, and then there’s holiday lunch. During this most wonderful time of year, Bon Temps, one of Esquire’s recently minted Best New Restaurants in the U.S, is providing guests with a new way of experiencing Chef Lincoln Carson’s culinary acumen through the launch of full-service lunch. What exactly can guests expect from this early holiday gift? Read on for more details.
Chef Carson’s attention to detail, honed during his more than 28-year career, is showcased through a thoughtful, yet concise menu curated for the downtown Los Angeles Arts District community and beyond. Guests can opt for lighter lunch fare including a gravlax tartine on rye levain, with meyer lemon schmear and trout roe, and a little gem salad with caesar vinaigrette, mackerel and parmesan; or order from main course options reminiscent of the restaurant’s dinner menu offerings. This menu includes chicken paillard, featuring Jidori chicken served with frisee and creamy vinaigrette, and steak frites, comprised of Creekstone prime flat iron, and maitre d’hotel butter.
Carson’s freshly made sandwiches, small salads, and pastries will still be available for take away. Guests have their choice of indoor or outdoor dining within the minimalist, contemporary space designed by Jon and Maša Kleinhample of Arts District-based, Belgian-born Klein Agency — in tandem with the project’s lead architect Nicole Cannon (NCA Studio Inc.). The semi-private wine room can be booked for an intimate lunch, ideally suited for the neighboring business clientele. Full-service lunch is offered Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. $5 valet is available with validation from Bon Temps., pub-2907176749232271, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0
