The new Forage restaurant on Sunset in Silver Lake.

I love the idea of this new place! 

The LA Times explains:
"Central to the restaurant's concept is its "foraging program," through which Bacon and Kim, along with the help of a friend named Eugene Ahn, encourage diners to bring in fresh fruits and vegetables from their gardens. Then, Kim and Bacon will create a dish, pastry or drink around those ingredients.

"We ask people to come in and we'll do a tasting in the kitchen, then we can figure out how to use it that day -- maybe in an agua fresca -- or maybe we give it to our pastry chef and it becomes a pie tomorrow," says Bacon. "Or it's super fresh and we throw it in a salad right there. Then we work out a little barter and trade system with the forager."

Mmmmmm... I'm gonna plant plenty of extra heirloom tomatoes and chili's this year! 
Visit them on Facebook too.
