Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

Kato is back in action, serving a $118 tasting menu outside from chef Jon Yao. As part of the relaunch, Kato is teaming up to serve an iconic dish from New York City restaurant Cote, known for its dry-aged Korean barbecue menu. In addition, Cote will be serving a dish from Kato as a sort of coastal exchange of tasty things as part of San Pelligrino’s Destination Dining Series. Meanwhile, Cote will serve Kato’s wagyu short rib charsiu (which looks pretty amazing, lucky New Yorkers). The Cote dish in LA will be an additional supplement to the menu and is available from November 5 to 13, with reservations available here. The tasting menu usually isn’t available to-go, though Kato will serve the tartare dish for takeout in limited quantities.
