The second iteration of Rustic Monday hits Fraîche on May 30th and features chef Jason Fulilove (Da Vinci, Desert Rose), who's preparing to open the Curious Palate at The Market in Santa Monica Place. He joins Fraîche chef Ben Bailly this bit of friendly rivalry.
It's a three-course, prix-fixe menu ($35) with each chef submitting one dish per course and diners selecting their favorite. (We recommend going with a friend and ordering through the entire menu.) Bailly will do a rustic daube Provencale, while Fulilove will offer a modern Bouillabaise. The first Rustic Monday, with chef Ricardo Zarate, was popular, and seating is limited, so reservations are highly recommended.
