On today’s Bullseye – only in Los Angeles! Netflix is expanding beyond streaming and mobile gaming and into a completely new category–restaurants. The company announced chefs from various Netflix cooking series, such as “Chef’s Table,” “Nailed It!” and “Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend.” Are coming together to create a new kind of restaurant, Netflix Bites. Not sure I love the name. According to techcrunch, Netflix Bites patrons will be able to taste food from “Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend” chefs Curtis Stone, Dominique Crenn, Ming Tsai and Andrew Zimmern, as well as Rodney Scott and Ann Kim from “Chef’s Table,” and pastry chef Jacques Torres, the head judge from “Nailed It!”
I actually was a model, if you can believe that, in the NY Chocolate Show where Jacques dressed me in a chocolate suit, hat and cane and I got my one-time opportunity to walk down the runway with high fashion models – all dressed in chocolate. Unfortunately Eileen Ford never called after that. There’s even more chefs - Nadiya Hussain from “Nadiya Bakes” and mixologists from Netflix’s “Drink Masters” — Frankie Solarik, Julie Reiner, LP O’Brien and Kate Gerwin. The restaurant will launch on June 30 and be open daily from 5-10 p.m. PT. There will also be a brunch menu available on the weekends from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. To book a reservation, people can visit www.netflixbites.com or Resy. Netflix Bites is located at Short Stories Hotel (115 S. Fairfax Ave.) in Los Angeles, conveniently down the road from The Grove shopping area.
