  1. Hehehe, definitely not. It's wanting to see how to make a traditional cuisine taste just as good or better than "back home" but without the benefit of terroir, as well as being involved with expansion plans and helping to shift a restaurant's identity while keeping to tradition. And I love the food and have ownership support for culinary and business interests we both share. It makes the most sense for me to be here. But who knows, maybe a pop-up in the future, though not anytime in the next 12 months. Pat
  2. Indeed, I've been at Vios since October. No story, Coterie Room is good folks doing delicious food. It was just a combination of realizing their modernist approach was too much of a departure from what I ultimately wanted to do, and the opportunity at Vios both being too good to pass up and more in line with cooking that hews to tradition. If I were younger, I would have liked to stay, especially since I'm a nerd too and genuinely enjoyed working with them. It's alright though, big plans in the works. First is Greek Easter, next is brunch, and more still after that. Anyway, now I'm at

  5. Will brunch be a dim sum type of format or variations on typical Western brunch items? It won't be dim sum, and while there will be a few familiar things to make it recognizably a morning meal, there will also be morning meal dishes as enjoyed in Korea, albeit all reinterpreted according to Chef Yang's imagination. Sorry if that's not terribly descriptive, I have a hard time describing the food at Joule too for the same reason! I will post a menu as soon as it's finalized. We start brunch on January 8. Pat
