After a series of friends and family meals and other pre-opening shindigs, Koreatown’s newest dinner option Here’s Looking at You will officially kick off tonight. Here’s what you can expect from the restaurant’s first-ever menu.
As previously noted, the dishes coming from chef Jonathan Whitener’s kitchen won’t stand too close to any one sensibility, but rather will play across boundaries — from nectarines served with Syrian feta and sumac to a plate of john dory dosed with dashi, brown butter, and mistuba.
You’ll also find larger format dishes like market price dry-aged steak, offered either as a bone-in ribeye or bone-in striploin. A smoked cornish hen and a plate of sturgeon with caviar each respectively represent the most expensive single known items on the menu, at $26 a pop. The full menu is below.
Here’s Looking at You opens tonight for its first official service at 6 p.m., with GM and co-owner Lien Ta working the room while Whitener plays the kitchen. From there, the restaurant will keep 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. hours Sunday through Thursday, with an extension until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. Reservations can be made here.
