Bizarre? Yes. Trendy? Definitely. A good idea at Rivera? Perhaps. John Sedlar is never one to shy away from trying out a good idea, and after a trip to State Bird Provisions in San Francisco, the Rivera chef decided on this format for dinner service.
LA Magazine reports that Sedlar started the dim sum-style service he's calling "loncheras" because, "People just don't have the time to eat, they want to head to the next event." It's a nod to traditional lunch trucks, the 5-year old eatery is offering everything from tamals, uni with pickled vegetables served inside a radicchio shell, and a broccamole, a guacamole made with broccoli.
