Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo will be having a very special Chicago guest in town this Spring. On Monday, April 8 and Tuesday, April 9, Son of a Gun will become a pop-up for "Masterchef judge" Graham Elliot. (Thankfully Gordo won't be around to be doing any barking.)

Perhaps in a move to test the L.A. audience for a future Los Angeles project, the Chicago heavy-hitter will bring in his sidekick, Operations Director/Corporate Chef Merlin Verrier, as well as his Sous Chef John Slack and sommelier Jamie Kluz.

Elliot's innovative approach in the kitchen is a welcome one here in L.A. He thinks of the kitchen as his sanctuary or lab, and loves to experiment with new ingredients. And considering how gorgeous the farmers markets will be at that point in time, we should be in for a real treat.

The 5-course dinner will go for $100 per person, with wine pairings for an extra $40. You can make reservations by ringing Son of a Gun at (323) 782-9033.
