2008 Abbot Kinney Festival Sunday, Sept. 28

From la.eater:

AK abruptly shuttered a week and a half ago to many diners’ surprise. Conny Andersson claimed to be taking the AK concept elsewhere due to “creative differences” with financiers, but back on Abbott Kinney a new chef plus restaurant concept has taken over. The Tasting Kitchen, headed by Chef Casey Lane, will feature an experimental dining concept over the next eight weeks. Starting tomorrow, the restaurant will open for dinner amidst interior and exterior modifications, and serve a paired down local, market-driven menu with 8-12 dishes. During the two month period Chef Casey will take diners’ feedback and continually tweak the menu, and the kitchen and dining room will emerge with a new menu, new look, and new name this Fall.
