Graham Elliot Still Wants to Open a Restaurant in LA

New, 7 comments

Chicago-based chef and restaurateur Graham Elliot has been talking about opening a restaurant in LA for years now. Years. At first Elliot hinted at some form of upscale dining operation, but no further word on specifics. Is he finally ready to pull the trigger? Maybe, maybe not. In an interview with The Daily Meal Elliot did, however, bring up the LA eatery plan, saying "What we’re looking to do is open something in California, simply because the product out there is amazing ... My restaurant partner, Merlin Verrier, is from that area and I have to be out there to film Masterchef, so I just love that area. It’s a good energy and I think what we do would translate well there." Bring. It.
