Newly opened Tapenade is already staging an ambitious chefs' dinner -- well, actually, a buddy party.
Barbara Hansen Tapenade at Tapenade
Set for Feb. 27, it will showcase dishes created by pals of Tapenade chef Ressul Rassallat. The pals are Andre Guerrero, with whom Rassallat worked at Maximiliano, and David Feau, who just ended his stint as executive chef of The Royce at the Langham in Pasadena. All three will cook together, like the good friends they are.
Guerrero has the first course, lobster, lobster reduction and pineapple served cold as panna cotta. Next comes Feau's plate of farmed lettuce heart and baby kale with salsify, kumquats, maitake mushrooms, onion petals and bergamot orange jus.More »
