David Chang’s first Los Angeles restaurant is shaping up down in Chinatown. The longtime East Coaster is now living in LA, cooking out of a test kitchen setup in anticipation of the inbound opening, and it seems he’s even finally settled on a name: Majordomo.
To see the name in action, check out this newly-minted landing website, though admittedly there’s not much happening at the site so far. The restaurant does have an official new Instagram account too, with a single post pointing to an upcoming event in December with chefs Adam Perry Lang and Roy Choi. It’s going to be called, appropriately enough, POTLuck. The flyer is below.
As the image shows, the December 19 event will feature Lang, Chang, and Choi all working up a variety of meats to accompany a near-endless variety of sides and desserts. Baroo, Animal, Night + Market, Republique, Sqirl, and a bunch of other folks will be involved in that side of the evening’s menu.
So far tickets have not been made available for sale (expectant diners can opt in for updates though), meaning there’s no notion of just what the POTLuck will cost. However, it is known that all of the funds are going to Jose Andres’s World Central Kitchen non-profit, so the money involved will end up in a positive place. And as for timing on Majordomo itself? The website is, sadly, now saying early 2018.
