Your Counter Intelligence Preview: In Which Mr. Gold Visits Son of a Gun
interior of Son of a Gun
This week, Jonathan Gold visits Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo's second restaurant, Son of a Gun. That would be their fish restaurant: Imagine going through the Animal menu and replacing all the pork products with corresponding bits of seafood. Okay, that's not exactly accurate, but you get the idea.
Son of a Gun was where you went for a single, nearly raw Santa Barbara spot prawn; for seared albacore drizzled with ponzu; or for a few dimes of raw, sliced geoduck with olive oil and sea salt, an appetizer meted out in quarter-grams, like cocaine.
