Chef Katsuji at Pitopia

So, I like many went to see Chef Katsuji (of Top Chef & Mexikosher fame) at his one day popup at Pitopia here in NYC. I must say the wait (not bad, 30 minutes) was worth. I was able to get one of each taco, and I must tell you that the brisket one just melted in my mouth through an explosion of flavor. The lamb was equally tasty and the chicken while good was not on the same level as the brisket. The pickled vegetables on each taco were flavorful and crisp adding a nice tart flavor to the rich meat flavors. I am looking forward to trying the burritos for dinner (my wife would have killed me if I did not get her something).

If you are a Top Chef fan like I am the enjoyable part was not just the wonderful food, but getting to met the larger than life personality we saw on TV. The smile never left his face, and he answered my Top Chef questions (and let him know I thought he got robbed (he agreed) when he was eliminated).

Just wondering if anyone else went, and if so, what is your thinking?
