Kitchen Art

Element Restaurant 7

In this country, at least, professional chefs own their personal set of premium knives. My son-in-law, who is executive chef for St. Louis University's arena and athletic facilities, has for years. He is not so extreme, though, as to have them tattooed on his forearm.

Element has an open kitchen, a popular design these days, and we were seated right in front of it Friday night. The people doing the cooking were precise, very organized and obviously enjoyed their work and one another. They had a great air of competence. It certainly showed on the plates put before us.

Fine shots BC. A couple of those arms look to be coming out of darkness. That final shot looks delicious!

The food and Elemental look like an excellent find Bob, when you think about returning to a spot, that 's the best sign of satisfaction :)
