At L.A. Chapter, on the ground floor of the Ace Hotel, much of the Australian-influenced New American food takes a main component that's trendy but expected (rabbit, uni), does exactly what you might predict with that ingredient, and then twists the dish just enough to make it wholly original. Rabbit is stewed and served as a ragu over polenta-like creamy semolina, along with shiitake mushrooms. But it's the lemongrass that sets the dish apart, an unexpected but welcome perfume that takes it from very good to great. Duck, cooked beautifully and layered over crispy spätzle and fennel cashew cream, has the barest hint of a licorice rub — not enough to turn off a licorice hater — just enough to convey mystery. — Besha Rodell Read our full review.
