Y&H was talking to Kaz Okochi, the Asian half of the trans-continental fusion cuisine at Masa 14, about (of all things) ramen when we launched into the subject of his new restaurant on 14th Street NW. It seems that Okochi and his partner, Richard Sandoval, will be starting their brunch menu this weekend.
“Brunch is not Asian,” Okochi tells Y&H. “It’s more of a Latin kind of thing” at Masa 14.
An early look at the new brunch menu confirms the chef’s perspective. Some of the items available include a chorizo calzone, pan dulce with ancho whipped cream, chilaquiles, yucca-brisket hash, and Anson Mills grits with chipotle peppers and Oaxaca cheese.
