We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Tomorrow night, Downtown L.A.'s One Eyed Gypsy will get a little taste of "Top Chef." Season 7's Alex Reznik will be popping up for Local's Night, which is basically a discounted eventing for anyone living in the neighborhood. He'll be there every Tuesday and Sunday for the month of May, using the interior of the Gypsy and its ghost Carnival theme as inspiration.

Since appearing on the Bravo reality show, Reznik has done stints at La Siene, This is Not a Pop-Upand opened up Fig Oly, which is also in Downtown L.A.

From the looks of things, the Brooklyn-born chef won't be bringing the pea puree he became so popular for stealing from fellow competitor Ed Cotton on the Bravo show, but he does have a very unique and playful menu planned. There are things like M & M made from mussels and marrow, and a CLT that will use lamb tongue bacon and challah bread instead of bacon, lettuce and tomato.

Here's the full list of what he's got planned:
