This should surely be the hottest ticket in town next week. Recent Food & Wine “People’s Best Chef California” winner, Ricardo Zarate, will join Top Chef-vet Alex Reznik at La Seine next Tuesday for a one-night omakse dinner at the restaurant’s sushi bar. According to a rep with the restaurant, these two toques go back a while and worked together at Test Kitchen on several occasions. There are only ten people allowed at the dinner, although two separate two-hour seatings are available at 7:00 and at 9:00 P.M. You will, however, need to pay to watch Zarate take on kosher cuisine, as reservations are on-sale for $120 per person, before tax and tip. Reservations, if you can afford them, are available at 310-358-0922.
