SimonL.A.s Iron Chef Kerry Simon will be the celebrity toque tapped to lend a hand (and name) at L.A. Market, JW Marriotts forthcoming Downtown location in L.A. Live. The ground-floor restaurant will seat about 200 guests both indoors and out, according to BlogDowntown, while an upstairs restaurant will also involve a famous chef, with Wolfgang Puck the front-runner in rumor-dom suggests LAist.
If you seek to tap into Simons brain, he will be his own featured guest at an upcoming dinner at Simon L.A. that sees the chef preparing seared tuna while LearnAboutWine pairs reds to the fish dish. Following that, Chef Simon will join guests for a $60 tuna-centric dinner to answer questions you may have, like what kind of conditioner are you using Chef Simon?
Reservations for the February 4th dinner can be made at 310.358-3979 and the "Dinner with Kerry" menu is below.
