With the Super Bowl less than one week away, popular Silver Lake restaurant Pijja Palace has just announced a watch party inside its TV-heavy dining room, complete with a five-course tasting menu. Owner Avish Naran just released reservations this morning to the one-off event, and it is expected to sell out fast considering the doors open at 3 p.m. and there is only one seating, for $85 per person. Chef Miles Shorey is playing the hits with a handful of twists including the dosa onion rings, baked malai ziti, chutney pizza, and s’mores.
As for drinks, Pijja’s new bar director and N/soto alum Jason Lee will prepare four cocktails that are not included in the tasting menu price. They’re riffs on regional classics from Philadelphia — fishhouse punch and a Clover Club — and Kansas City — horsefeather and Kansas City ice water. Get a seat on Resy.
