Jet Tila, the chef at Vegas' Wazuzu, a Good Food contributor, and guest on No Reservations fans, is coming to L.A. for two nights in March to cook with The Royce's French sous chef, Alex Ageneau, at an event in BreadBar Third Street that the duo calls "Bistronomics." The idea is to combine a handful of simple, seasonal market ingredients and turn them into five haute dishes with a fixed $65 price. The chefs will man an open kitchen and chef's station where they will supposedly interact with a room of 24 seats indoors and 24 outdoors, recreating the feel of a small bistro. What will they be cooking? Take a look at the five-course menu and if so moved, make reservations at 310-205-0124.
