DiningDiva turned me on to the talents of Javier Plascencia with a wonderful post about Mision 19 quite some time ago, and I have been creepily following his exploits since then.
Well, thanks to Jay and gang, Javier will be popping up at El Take It Easy in a few weeks. I'll definitely be going... hope to see some CHers there as well!
Details (taken from El's website) below:
We’re pleased to present one of our region’s most renowned chefs, cooking a dinner at El Take It Easy on Monday, March 5th. Chef Javier Plascencia will cook a 5 course meal, in which each course is a version of a dish from one of his Tijuana-based restaurants, which include Misión 19, Erizo Baja Fish House, Casa Plascencia, Villa Saverio’s, and Caesar’s.
We will be accepting reservations from 5pm to 11pm — it’s rolling seating. The dinner will be $40 for 5 courses, with drink pairings for $30 extra. The regular beverage menu will also be available. Due to the special nature of this event, our regular menu will not be available on this nite (nor will our Manhattan Monday menu).
