Nara's Chef Table Debuts; V-Day Beer Dinner at Lowbrow

UPPER KIRBY— The chef's table at Nara is officially open to the public today (Feb. 5). Chef/owner Donald Chang will personally cook a six-course meal consisting of three Korean and three Japanese dishes for this personal dining experience. Parties of 10 to 13 diners can make reservations for a 7 p.m. seating on Wednesday through Saturday only. Some of the menu highlights include red miso clam chowder and sake samgyupsal (rice wine-marinated pork belly), but the changing menu is more about surprising diners and allowing the chef to flex his creative muscle with the aid of high quality cuts of meat and fresh ingredients. The cost is $100 per person for food and an additional $50 for wine, sake and soju pairings, but that's subject to change depending on the menu. Call 281-249-5944 to make a reservation. And don't confuse the chef's table with the Korean grill room, which debuted a few months ago. [Eaterwire]
