Where we've featured it
El Ideas wants to make fine dining fun, and they succeed in accomplishing that goal. It’s not as wild a place as Schwa, but it’s also BYOB and more approachable. At least it’s more approachable once you find it, because you’d never notice it on a random stretch of 14th Street near Western unless you’re specifically on the hunt. The kitchen encourages you to kick it with them as they basically talk you through what they’re doing, which can be really helpful and fun if you don’t normally do this kind of thing. But it’s also fun for the expert who wants to know more about the process of creating such an exciting meal.
Food: $155 or $175 for front row seats (plus tax & service charge)
