Chinatown’s Pok Pok continues to inch closer to opening, with chef/owner Andy Ricker officially announcing last night that they're now taking reservations for a sneak peek tasting on October 20 via Tock.

The Tock that Ricker is referring to is, of course, the Nick Kokonas-backed restaurant reservation system meant to revamp the entire market for getting yourself a table at any given restaurant. It’s proven especially popular in its early rollout phase with high-demand restaurants like Maude in Beverly Hills and Trois Mec, primarily because it more makes it easier to manage prime and non-prime seating times, and helps curb costly no-shows in the process.

Ricker’s long-awaited Pok Pok LA will eventually take reservations for service beginning on October 28, but the tweet above announces tables for an early October 20 sneak peek. These early tastings are an all-inclusive price for food and drink, which is a pretty great deal. Feel like being one of the first to catch a glimpse of the newest Pok Pok outpost? Now’s your chance.
