We’ve long buzzed about Shojo’s craft cocktail program, but the recent arrival of chef Mark O’Leary has electrified its kitchen. O’Leary, founder of successful pop-ups like Guchi’s Midnight Ramen, has a funky style that mixes high-end know-how (he hails from the ultra-luxe O Ya) with a pretense-free affection for gnarly eats. Awesome results include Sapporo-soaked hot dogs wrapped in nori and steamed buns, and a “Shojonator” burger topped with “kimchi Velveeta.”
