Foodie Joy at A-Frame

Because I'm starting to run short on new blog debuts, I'm joining forces with the absolutely fabulous @xoxoGG of a deliberate pace and @loveonthego of Los Angeles Burger Bracket, for a new collaborative tumbler which we'll debut early next year.   Still working out a few of the specific deets, but we kicked out our new alliance with a Roy Choi feast.

Roy Choi, the mastermind behind the great Kogi, and Chego just opened his newest venture, A-frame... a picnic inspired eatery taking over an old IHOP locale on Washington Blvd & keeping the signature A-Frame architecture.  He partnered with David Reiss of the Alibi Room (home to the permanent Kogi distribution center) and The Brig.

A-frame includes a full bar & extensive cocktail menu and a very share-able food menu.  People are encouraged to get their hands a little dirty, silverware is offered, but certainly not required.  They also don't take reservations to keep the pretension outside the door, and all tables are communal, so who knows who you could be rubbing elbows with!

We went with the Baby Back Ribs || air-dried with hoisin-chili glaze & sesame, Cracklin Beer Can Chicken || Peruvian-style with century egg, salsa roja & salsa verde, Peel-N-Eat Shrimp || kaffir lime leaf dried shrimp salt, cocktail sauce & citrus, Kitchen Fries || purple Okinawa sweet potatoes, yam, Korean sweet potatoes & kimchi sour cream w/ sea salt AND Fried Apple Pie || w/ Southern Comfort Caramel & cheddar ice cream for dessert!

What would I recommend out of our feast?  EVERYTHING. And get a few drinks while you're there as well... I had something called the Mainland || Pisco, Lilikoi, Lime, Egg & Cayenne Pepper which knocked my socks off.

Right now they're only open for dinner, but are hoping to include lunch service in the near future.  Food is served from 5pm - midnight & last call is around 1:30am. 

And if you're lucky... like we were, you can see Mr. Kogi himself wandering the restaurant making sure everything is in tip top shape. :-)
