Chatting with one of the valets at Benu, vulber heard that the restaurant sells burritos outside at 11 p.m. on Saturday nights. L C says that the story had been that the chef allowed his Mexican prep cooks to make street food out of the leftovers that would otherwise be thrown away … but like a cryogenically frozen Walt Disney and Richard Gere’s pet gerbil, this rumor is too deliciously strange to be true. L C searched for a burrito one Saturday evening and found only a closed-down kitchen and the chef meeting with his staff.
Anyone tried one?
