Debbie Lee is bringing her Korean-Southern hybrid dishes to 3rd Street’s BreadBar, in addition to more puns riffing on the word “Seoul.” Over six weeks, the The Next Food Network Star finalist will debut recipes for a new restaurant venture she’s starting in L.A. Brace for it, the menu is called “Seoultown Tapas” and involves Korean pub food with condiments from the confederate like maple smoked bacon and chestnut glaze, as well as innovative izakaya ingredients like edamame hummus and Japanese popcorn. Lee’s new eats will be available at BreadBar Tuesdays through Saturdays, 6:30-10:30 P.M., from February 24th-April 10th. Reservations can be made at 310-205-0124 and a tentative menu is below.
