This blog reported when Michael Voltaggio was leaving The Dining Room at The Langham in Pasadena, so we’re happy to announce his latest plans. The Top Chef season 6 winner will be opening a new restaurant called “Ink.” in Los Angeles in mid 2011. It reportedly will occupy the Melrose Avenue space that formerly housed Hamasaku. There’s no word yet whether molecular gastronomy will be on the menu.
Sadly, his restaurant won’t be open in time for Thanksgiving, but many other restaurants are offering a top holiday meal. If you can’t wait to taste Michael’s creations, you can prepare your Thanksgiving bird under his direction. Michael gives instructions on how to cook turkey sous vide and also has a recipe for turkey brine. Either way, pair it with one of our Thanksgiving wines and enjoy your holiday.
