LA Times Hypes Bäcoshop, Chef Josef Centeno's New Restaurant in Culver City

This week, the Los Angeles Times' Jenn Harris whet our appetite for Bäcoshop, the new restaurant in downtown Culver City.

Bäcoshop is the newest brainchild of chef Josef Centeno, who has already opened five hip restaurants in downtown Los Angeles: Orsa & Winston, Ledlow, PYT, Bar Ama, and Bäco Mercat. I can personally attest to the excellence of Bar Ama (Pork Bell Chicharrón and Mole Enchiladas: yes!), and no less an authority than Jonathan Gold named Bäco Mercat one of the 101 best restaurants in Los Angeles. So it's got bona fides.

Bäcoshop is described as a "fast casual" version of Centeno's food, highlighted by "bäcos": sandwiches made with his "signature flatbread," cooked right before your eyes and filled with "green herb chicken with za’atar, coffee-rubbed steak, braised pork, roasted eggplant [or] shrimp in a chile de árbol sauce."

Continues the article "Centeno’s salads are also on display in a case at the front: a bright orange beet salad with turmeric vinaigrette, 'Caesar' Brussels sprouts with pecorino and roasted cauliflower with wild rice, raisins and pecans. There’s also a grain bowl with burrata, and an option to order a trio of salads."

The article also contains this great quote from chef Centeno, detailing why he's excited to come to Culver City:

"We had been looking for a long time, but this space came up, and Culver City is having kind of a reinvention...It’s exciting to be here with Jordan [Kahn of Destroyer] down the street, Sang [Yoon of Lukshon and Father’s Office] down the street, who has always been ahead of the game, and Akasha [Richmond of Akasha and AR Cucina] across the street."
