The date is set. Kogi mastermind Roy Choi's first honest-to-goodness restaurant, called Chego, will open its doors in Palms on April 7th.

Kogi launched a Korean taco truck phenomenon that has spawned many imitators since it began, but this new restaurant will not be the first time Choi's food has been served in an actual building. His Korean tacos have been served since last year in Culver City bar The Alibi Room. The new restaurant however, which Choi once described as “Yoshinoya 5.0,” will focus on inexpensive starters, rice bowls and desserts.

Chego, 3300 Overland Ave., L.A.
