At a launch event for $300-a-bottle Milagro Unico Tequila last night, John Sedlar spilled the frijoles that he is installing a rooftop garden on top of Playa this afternoon, in case you’re wondering why there’s a crane doing some heavy lifting in front of his Beverly Blvd. restaurant. Sedlar and his chef de cuisine, Kevin Luzande, are heading to Florida next week to train their green thumbs in preparation of growing their own. The chef says, “it’s going to be really fun,” and jokes that he may try to raise his own agave al tejado in time.
