A release today confirms that Terry Heller and chef/partner Ernesto Uchimura's Plan Check will open on February 22 in West LA’s Little Osaka nabe. But, actually, friends and fam kicks off this coming Thursday and if you want to score a pre-taste, e-mail here for an early resy.
It's about time lauded barmen Pablo Moix and Steve Livigni - responsible for bar programs around town at La Descarga, Harvard & Stone, and Black Market - took a westside gig, and here one will find a focus on Japanese whiskeys, in addition to craft beer and a few specialty cocktails.
To eat, former Umami corporate chef and partner Ernesto Uchimura works out modern American comfort food with mild Asian influences. Think a selection of burgers, smoky fried chicken, and short rib pot with most plates priced between $11 to $17. Stay tuned for interior shots but the restaurant seats 110 diners between communal tables, booths, and the outdoor patio.
