OC Weekly's Description

Chef Oge Dalken's dishes are like a riddle asked, then
wittily answered. What, for instance, is a potato pear? Well, it's a
Japanese corokke-like, breaded, mashed-potato ball that's stuffed with
mushroom duxelle, molded into a pear's shape, and eaten with a wild-mushroom
marsala cream sauce. And what is this dessert called "Milk & Cereal"? Why,
it's a bowl of perfectly set panna cotta playing the role of milk and the
crispy Greek pastry dough called kataifi doubling for shredded wheat. A
scoop of Cinnamon Toast Crunch ice cream drives home the punch line like a
rim shot.

    I know the guys who started this place. Give them a chance. The place looks great and the menu looks delicious.

    Awesome hipster, trendy spot. Get the moscow mule!

  • Lindsay on 03/29/11

    The specialty cocktails are the most unique drinks I've seen in years. You've got to try their take on the Moscow Mule, Druid Divination or Holiday in Cambodia.
