MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Second restaurants are typically bigger in size and ambition, but that's not so for Chef/owners Johnny Clark and Beverly Kim, who also run Parachute next door. The setup here is so modest that it's almost alarming—four courses and small bites, which change nightly and with no particular cuisine allegiance beyond whatever is on hand and tastes good together. There are no luxury supplements either, like truffles, Wagyu and no lengthy explanations about how your food should be eaten. It’s just seasonal cooking done right, in a cheerful space built out of reclaimed pine, felt finishes, and retro light fixtures.

One night yielded a goat’s milk panna cotta with candied violets that, like the restaurant itself, sounded simple but turned out to be so much more.
