General manager Jeff Haber with Sophie Gayot

General manager Jeff Haber with Sophie Gayot


 When I received a picture accompanying the announcement of the new Chaya in downtown Los Angeles (which opened on Monday), I was wondering what the pink mass was on the top. Last night, I had dinner there and I can now tell you what it is.


Truly, I could never have guessed if general manager Jeff Haber hadn’t explained to me that it is a lamp fixture designed by English artist Stuart Haygarth made of flotsam and jetsam hanging on strings. Haber absolutely refused to give me more details about the objects, since if you are able to guess how many there are you will win a 5-course dinner for 4 with paired wine. Good luck and don’t drink too much before counting!
