We wanted to stand apart in the world of food and that is by no chance an easy feat. The two people who started this venture had been sous chefs together for a long time before moving on to head star restaurants. Our friendship though aged like fine wine and eventually we decided to start a venture that focused on opening a deconstructed fusion restaurant. And the business boomed.
We wanted to play around with age-old classics and build something new. Chaos is our secret.
FRESHLY PICKED DAILY

You might think you are eating scallops, but it could just be chicken. That air of mystery in their full course meal will get anyone to the edge of their seats in anticipation.
What we are going to talk about is like warming up before a hard cold game out in the field. Drinking is an art and needs the right kind of preparation. Poor prep work and you could be facing the barrel of a gun, literally and figuratively. Because who knows what sort of stuff you end up doing while under the influence of alcohol. There are some dishes that prolong the inevitable; there is no dish that is going to prevent the inevitable. So without wasting any more valuable time, let’s take a look at a list of things that you can have before drinking your hearts out.
Salmon is a great way to start your night. It is by far one of the classiest and tastiest things that can set the tone of the night. But more importantly it has an abundance of Vitamin B-12, but you can sit there and wonder as to why we are signaling out that particular Vitamin. It is because when you drink, the vitamin starts depleting in your body and can thus cause adverse effects in extreme cases. So going overstocked with vitamin b-12 is a good way to ensure that you stay well within the optimal range.
Milk is the savior we all need, but one we don’t realize is required till too late. Before you go on a night out, make sure to drink a glass of milk. Milk has a lot of potassium and you are in need of potassium, as your body has lost a lot of it and other minor electrolytes due to your frequent trips to the bathroom. Milk is also essentially 90% water; so having a glass of milk followed by a glass of water is going to do wonders for your body and help you combat the dreaded hangover the next morning.
The debate still rages on whether the egg came first or whether the chicken did. But in your cases, the egg should always come first. You can either start your night by having a couple of eggs as pregame preparation or you can have it during the night as a way to improve your defenses you can have it in the morning as a last minute bet to ensure that you have some strength left to fight. Eggs contain a lot of amino acid that helps break down alcohol, that is the reason for all the hype.
Bourbon and Picked Vegetables
Bourbon is a niche drink and is enjoyed by a few compared to the popularity that whiskey and rum have. The thing is that there are not a lot of things that can be paired with Bourbon, but pickled vegetables and bourbon have silently formed a bond of sorts that has stood the test of time. The sourness of pickled vegetables then goes on to balance out the flavor profile of the alcohol, which tends to lean towards sweet and spicy. The contemporary mix is further explored by involving the crunchy texture of the vegetables into the mix with all other contributing elements.
Chips and Dips with Beer
Almost everyone who has tasted the alcohol at some point in time experienced what beer felt like. Beer is actually an acquired taste; that is acquired by a lot of people who are broke. Beer is something that you can get for the cheap, so can the sides. The sides are practically much cheaper actually. All you need is a packet of salted chips and three or four dips and your set for an amazing evening with your friends and a couple of six-packs.
Smoked Pork Ribs and Whiskey
Smoked meat is a definite yes when it comes to whiskey, but within that category pork ribs truly represent a classic pairing with whiskey. Whiskey is said to have a strong smoky taste to it and some have even gone on and said that they can taste a mild tinge of BBQness to the whole thing. The Pork ribs are quite perfect and properly cooked pork ribs basically melt in your mouth. The flavor of pork meat when it is smoked goes really well with whiskey and this is one of the reasons why pork ribs are preferred over other forms of smoked meat when pairing up with whiskey.
The fact of the matter is that each alcohol will for sure have an expertly chosen dish that balances and enhances flavors so that the consumer gets a mind-blowing experience. But alcohol for the longest time has been a sort of comfort zone for people and thus we believe that classic pairings only matter so much. So if you are looking to have a great evening with your friends, then we recommend you get a lot of fries, chips, cheese, dips, salted peanuts and some dark chocolate to finish things off. We are sure that everyone will have a blast with the best pair up we could think of; you, friends, booze and food.
