As­sem­bly Chef’s Hall

NOW Magazine - - COVER STORY -

With this much star power un­der one roof – it’s ba­si­cally the Trav­el­ing Wil­burys – As­sem­bly was pretty much a guar­an­teed hit from the be­gin­ning. Es­tab­lished hot spots like DaiLo, Shoushin, Khao San Road, Ra­men Isshin, Cherry Street Bar-B-Que and more all leapt at An­dreas An­to­niou’s of­fer to bring their stuff to a down­town lunch crowd hun­gry for nov­elty and at­mos­phere. Even if you’ve fre­quented the orig­i­nal restau­rants, sur­prises abound, like smoky okra at Mira Mira, from fresh­man chef Amira Be­care­vic, and the un­earthly burger at Ivana Raca and Brad Smith’s Resto Boemo (Raca once looked me dead in the eyes and told me it was the best in town, and woman wasn’t blowin’ smoke). 111 Rich­mond West, at York, 647-557-5993, as­sem­bly­chef­shall.com

Smoked okra with cau­li­flower gratin, ve­gan queso and pur­ple cab­bage at Mira Mira in­side As­sem­bly Chef’s Hall.
