Well, it's been quite the day for new restaurant news from top-tier chefs who don't do a whole lot of publicity. Metrocurean follows up with chef and owner Johnny Monis on yesterday's news that his restaurant Komi has completed its expansion and has already begun previewing its family-style menu. Monis shares that the new restaurant will be named Little Serow — and it will be a totally separate restaurant from Komi.
Not only will each restaurant have its own kitchen, but there are a few other important distinctions. The most obvious of these is that Little Serow will be serving Northeastern Thailand's Isaan cuisine — the type of food Monis says he loves cooking in his spare time. But other important differences? Well, more people will be able to afford Little Serow at its $45 per person price point. And whereas Komi reservations are difficult to snag — sports mogul Ted Leonsis says it took him two years to get a table — this restaurant will be walk-in only. The opening date is not exactly set, but should be coming "in the next week or so."
