LA Times | Findlocal - S. Irene Virbila
Tasting Menu: Playa - The latest from Rivera's John Sedlar is splashy fun.
I squeeze past the podium, following the hostess sashaying in front of me toward our table at the new Playa. Light fixtures like giant albino sea urchins dangle overhead. A waiter crosses my path bearing a plate with a single large clamshell the size of a purse. Our table is at the very back, past a handsome rusted steel wall and tables filled with startling plates, laughter and beguiling cocktails.
Knowing Sedlar, he and chef de cuisine Kevin Luzande won't stop tinkering with the menu. To keep up, I'm thinking I may have to become a regular of sorts. Lucky me.
