While Pollyn's Adam Jay Weissman spins tunes in the Tar Pit lounge, Choi and Peel will dish out a special menu that includes a choucroute kimchi made with spicy ginger pork sausage, Choi's "choice burger" (8 oz. dry-aged beef patty, Plugrá butter, caramelized onions and aged cheddar), abalone risotto and matcha green tea granita for dessert.
Choi, who is a big fan of Peel's, says, "[Mark] is a walking encyclopedia and a triple O.G. in the food game here in LA. I used to eat at Campanile A LOT before I ever became a chef. It's kind of like breaking the fourth wall cooking with a legend I look up to, but fuck it, why not? We gonna wreck some shit, come through!" So they shall.
