Studiokitchen recap/update

After salivating for months after reading Studiokitchen reviews on this site, I went (along with 7 of my closest friends) last week, and it did not disappoint - everything was pretty much jaw-dropping, and Shola Olunloyo, the chef/host, was much more unassuming than I would have guessed from his pre-dinner instructional email! (He even graciously permitted some of my co-diners to head out for a smoke break before dessert.)

FYI - the price has now gone up to $100/person, tip included/BYO. I think that we were probably the poorest people he'd seen in a while (all grad students)! And for those wondering about Shola's restaurant plans, he mentioned having gotten the financing, and looking now for a Center City location.

Menu's below---


Cured Dayboat Scallops
