Jason Howard, is a happy man. The restaurant he and his partners, Jonathon Fritz and Mike Prout, have been building for the past several weeks, is open. Finally. And first reports are that La Plancha del Mar is good.
La Plancha is on the second floor of the Marketplace, down a long hallway, where China Shack used to be.
What they’ve done with the space, and the kitchen, is amazing. China Shack seemed to me to be small, but Jason and Jonathon have figured a way to add table seating for lunch and dinner, install a bar, and still find room for a kitchen which features garlic tiger prawns, lump crab croquets, yellow fin tuna, and paella.
StJohnTalk.com’s Matt was there for the first seating and loved it. 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Read the review at http://www.stjohntalk.com/blog/?p=918
