LQ Popping Up Again, This Time at His Own Place

New, 3 comments

Sprightly chef Laurent Quenioux, who last popped-up at Barney Greengrass in Beverly Hills, has been off the grid for more than a few months. While he's still the executive chef at Vertical Wine Bistro in Pasadena, the creative side of Quenioux has been itching to come out and play again. In an odd turn, LQ is turning his space at Vertical into a pop-up by offering a few days of crazy new menus. On February 10 and 11, and again on February 24 and 25, find a new LQ menu made with some influence from his Starry Kitchen days. Reservations can be made online. Unlike the Starry Kitchen pop-ups, a full bar is available at Vertical. View the five course menu, including green lentil jam, below.
