Last week, Scott Disick's Japanese restaurant Ryu got slammed in the Post, and it also popped up on a deal site, which is never a good sign for a four-week-old business. But a new Craigslist job posting explains that people should ignore all the haters because the food here is great:
Ryu has been dubbed "Scott Disicks" new restaurant. They say its his first and possibly his last. Well, Ryu is smack in the middle of the Meat Packing District and the Facebook page has a photo of Kanye West and the whole Kardashian crew. Yeah they were there. Yeah they come and hang out. But what you don't hear about on Eater or on Page Six is how great the fucking food is. Seriously, you think Scott has anything to do with the crew in the kitchen? You think he has control over this menu?
Behind the scenes the technicians from The Fatty Crew (Fatty Crab & Fatty 'Cue) are making some great things happen.
Hokkaido Scallop | green strawberry, ginger, lime, habanero
Chilled Wild Greens | black garlic, tamari
Wagyu Cote Du Boeuf | porcini, fresh wasabi
Rhode Island Fluke | yuzu kosho, white soy, chives
Serious cooks step up and walk thru the velvet rope. In the BOH there's a serious vibe goin on.
