Josef Centeno is the chef-owner of four acclaimed restaurants in downtown Los Angeles: Baco Mercat, Bar Ama, Orsa & Winston and Ledlow. Josef's tasting menus at a restaurant called Opus in Koreatown were famously groundbreaking: you could order as many courses as you wanted for $10 each. And when he opened Lazy Ox in Little Tokyo, it was the first restaurant that shifted critical attention to downtown Los Angeles. Betty Hallock is a food writer who formerly was an editor in the LA Times' award-winning Food section. As deputy food editor and a founding editor of the Daily Dish blog, she helped direct food and drink coverage, writing and editing stories about restaurants, cooking, cocktails, business trends, and more.
