5-Course Korean Meets Mexican Tasting Event

Opening in Phinney Ridge just this past May, Arc, located in the former Park Pub space, serves food inspired by the fusion of Korean and Mexican cuisines found in the restaurants and food trucks of L.A.’s Koreatown. Executive Chef Brandon Lancaster is a Mexican-American cook, painter, and musician who grew up in LA and is an alum of the critically acclaimed but dearly departed JuneBaby. At Arc, he is turning out inventive and exciting dishes, like drunken mojo stew (citrus-rubbed pork, beer verde reduction, pico de gallo, cowboy cornbread, and hot honey), zanahoria asadas (roasted carrots, spiced yogurt, salsa verde, crushed hazelnuts, and vegan chorizo) and market bowl (stinging nettle rice, Bulgogi tofu, pickled medley, sunny egg, and K mayo). It’s all served up in a louche lounge atmosphere of floral wallpaper, leopard-print carpets, houseplants, and chandeliers. We’re hyped to visit, to experience Arc’s food, and to hear how Chef Lancaster lands on his culinary ideas.
