We came upon the tasting table for Joss at the Concern Foundation Block Party last week, the same Joss that sat on the western side of the Sunset Boulevard for 20 years, but closed in 2006 (now Nonna). There were rumors they took a space on Santa Monica Boulevard sometime ago, and the folks at the table confirm that Joss Cuisine/Traditional will open in a few weeks. According to the website, the kitchen will be helmed by Golo Kwokson Yu who was with the restaurant from 1988 to its closing, and Joss founder Cecile T'ang is still involved, mostly as a consultant. The focus will be still be Chinese cuisine with a modern health-conscious bent, with many Joss standbys on the menu but also tasting menus that "discover classic regional dishes with a little element of surprise." The space will have a "minimalist, Shanghai 30's theme." At the event they served some pretty tasty dumplings and an array of spicy sauces, very enjoyable.
