Jonathan Gold Reviews Industriel

New, 3 comments

From drinks to dinner to dessert, The Goldster feels disappointed by Industriel's "aggravating fusion," menu conceived by chef Joseph Antonishek:

Like every other restaurant opening these days, Industriel charges for bread and butter as if it were an actual dish, but the presentation — damp focaccia, plus a chunk of something that must have once belonged to a baguette — will remind you that you really should be cutting down on your carbs. The menu, typed on what was probably once your great-grandmother's Underwood, includes a bit of almost everything that has been bopping around the Los Angeles restaurant scene this year.
Antonishek, although clearly talented, may be trying a little too hard. It will be interesting to see what Industriel could become if he settles down.
As far as dessert, all JG has to say is, "If your idea of a perfect after-dinner drink is a bottle of extra-dark stout, this may be the dessert to have." [LAT]
