Pop-Up Art

LAST WEEKEND, a group of friends and I descended on the Fashion District after hours for a dining adventure. During the day Fred Eric’s Tiara Cafe turns out solid breakfast and lunches for the Fashion Institute folks, but at night it has been recently inhabited by Long Beach-based chef Gary Menes.

Le Comptoir at Tiara Cafe, a pop-up, was set to serve dinner until late this month. His stay was extended to January so we were told. Menes’ work is both exacting and fluid.

It’s art on the plate.

And we took care of it — all
