Also went to another one of his new concepts, a lo-fi version of the Daily Grill called Public School 612 - which has some very neat design and experiential details as you will see. www.publicschool612.com
Also on the tour was a new offshoot of the Umami Burger Group called "Umami-catessen". Urban LA cool serving a multitude of swine and beer offerings. Of note is the safety glass they used on the sneeze guards. This would work well at JJ's.
Finally, we visited with Tyler Wilson, owner of Wurstkuche - a hip sausage and beer joint in downtown LA. The were saving 15 or 20 different sausages - no hot dogs - featuring italian, cajun and german specialties and also exotics like rabbit and jalepeno and rattlesnake. They also served a number of different micros on draft. The microbrew trend is indeed alive and well in Los Angeles. (www.wurstkuche.com)
