Some restaurants emerge fully formed, rough edges smoothed by architects and restaurant consultants, menus run through focus groups. Lot 1 is the other kind of new restaurant, a raw space seemingly willed into being, black walls and nine funky tables, heart-stoppingly beautiful tattooed waitresses, and a farmers-market-intensive roster of dishes.

She's making it up as she goes along, which could be either annoying or incredibly cool, depending on where you stand on these things.
