"Global cuisine" is just a marketing catch phrase that replaces the now-trite-sounding "fusion," but it means the same thing: expect anything to show up on your plate. At Kimera, you'll see prosciutto and aioli on the same menu as kim chee and wasabi-but somehow, executive chef Chris Grodach makes all the different cultures peacefully co-exist. Now if only the United Nations can do the same for the real world beyond our plates.
