Top Chef season six winner and upper-case-hater Michael Voltaggio is gearing up to open his restaurant ink. this September, and Eater LA got a sneak peek (see the massive photogallery). The restaurant will serve "composed plates that are meant to be shared" and will have a 10-12 dish tasting menu available. Also, don't expect Voltaggio to be one of those love 'em and leave 'em chefs: he's promising to "be at the restaurant all day, every day and night."
Also: Eater LA got confirmation of a rumored sandwich shop a few doors down from ink. It will be called ink.sack. It should be opening any day now and will serve sandwiches of both the savory and ice cream variety.
