The Playground To Stop Serving Lunch
John Gilhooley/OC Weekly
We are truly devastated to break this news to you. The truth is, we are unable to maintain (and progress) the level of quality in our food. We have never been about making money, our core values lie in honing our craft. Testing, reevaluating, improving. But now we are perpetually behind. Always finishing our prep just before dinner, with no time to test and perfect. The result is our own insecurities about serving food that we are not 100% sure is our best. And my friends, we can not live with that. It is our goal as a restaurant to procure all the greatest culinary treasures of the world, treat them simply, and hopefully let them shine. Changing every day, we are on a never ending quest to learn more and work with the highest possible quality of ingredients. Unfortunately, we have such a small kitchen that we can not serve lunch with the same attention as we commit to dinner. By eating lunch here, you are having worse than our best (hopefully still wonderful). We are working on future endeavors in this area that will be better lunch options, we thank you for your patience.Passion over profit,Jason Quinn
