Elementa is proud to present and welcome our dear friends Chris Wolff and Jonathan Tu, the masterminds behind Journeymen Oakland, from the Bay Area. Chris and Jonathan met while working at Viajante in London, UK around the same time Josh and Ashley(of Elementa) were also at the now shuttered temple of experimental cuisine. The guys from Journeymen have a wealth of experience in some of the best kitchens both in the USA and Europe including: Rich Table(SF), Bar Tartine(SF), wd-50(NYC) and Le Chateaubriand(Paris). Combining their experiences, Chris and Jonathan's cooking is innovative, playful and extremely tasty. This dinner will be a collaborative effort between both groups. Dishes will go back and forth, from the urban, intensely flavored dishes of Journeymen to the natural, earthy offerings of Elementa. Come and sample autumnal offerings from Elementa and taste dishes prepared by two of the Bay Area's most exciting young culinary talents.
