    Katsuji Tanabe is the onion of kosher chefs-- every time you think you've figured him out, you find there;'s a whole other layer.

    I walked into Barnyard with a chip on my shoulder.

    Barnyard is the new Venice restaurant from Chef Jesse Barber.  It's very New Venice: farm-to-table food, hot chef with even hotter resume (Tasting Kitchen, French Laundry), local beers, wines that appear on no wine Apps, and of... read on
