Well, Chodorow's latest venture is in London—Suka, which serves Malaysian fusion cuisine created by the New York-based Zak Pelaccio of 5 Ninth and Fatty Crab—and this Sunday it received a review from the Observer's Jay Rayner that begins thusly:
"It takes a special kind of incompetence to create a restaurant with dysfunctional tables. At Suka, a new hipper-than-thou joint in London's Sanderson Hotel, which does to the noble culinary traditions of Malaysia what the Romans did to the Sabine women, they have managed it."
N.B. Suka means "to like" in Malay but, as you'd expect from a disyllabic word, means different things in other languages. In Polish, it means "bitch"; in Tagalog, it means either "vinegar" or "vomit" depending on pronunciation.
