Proving that gang-life has a pistol-grip even on L.A.'s upper crust citizens, The Loving Spoonful introduces us to 5x5 Chefs Collaborative today. This super group of chef heavies is currently claimed by Michael Cimarusti of Providence, Josiah Citrin of Mèlisse, David LeFevre of Water Grill, Gino Angelini of Angelini Osteria, and Neal Fraser of Grace. All are coming to Water Grill this Sunday to jump in Chef Curtis Duffy, of Chicago's restaurant Avenues (not Highland Park's). Having explained to Grub Street Chicago of his past suffering at the hands of veteran chefs, Duffy will join 5x5 as each master prepares their own dishes on a special prix-fixe menu, available for $150, with wine pairings an extra $65, portion of proceeds to go to SoCal's Special Olympics. Reservations can be made for the dinner at (213) 891-0900 and a menu is up at Loving Spoonful.
