Le Ka: Downtown With Remi Lauvand 

January 23, 2013
Le Ka could have been built as a set. It could be a backdrop for the meet-cute moment in the crappy romantic comedies we all wish Ryan Gosling still made, a perfect location for the Real Housewives to stage a fight, a platonic ideal of "exciting new downtown hot spot." What's actually exciting about Le Ka, though, is the chef. Remi Lauvand has a fantastic culinary history, starting on the Orient Express. The French native then went to New York, where he eventually worked under Daniel Boulud as executive sous chef at Le Cirque in the late '80s. Read the full review of Le Ka here.
