If you've been watching The Taste, the new ABC culinary competition show with Anthony Bourdain and the buxom Nigella Lawson, you may be vaguely familiar with contestant Uno Immanivong, a Dallas resident who also owns a "boutique food company" called Foodie Couture. As Carol Shih reports, Immanivong has her very own restaurant called Chino in the works at Trinity Groves. Chino will feature an Asian-Latin fusion menu (or, according to Shih, "the Americanized version of Asian street food").
Chino isn't slated to open till May, but those chomping at the bit for a taste can get a sneak preview via a one-night-only Chino pop-up at Trinity Groves brewhouse Four Corners Brewing Co. on February 9. (According to Ummanivong's company Facebook page, the pop-up idea was inspired by none other than Taste host Nigella Lawson.)
