LA Weekly's Besha Rodell investigates the idea behind Dinner Lab, a roving pop-up where diners' feedback is meticulously collected, to be used later to "reverse engineer" a new restaurant based on trends, likes, and dislikes.

It seems the opposite of what a meal out ought to be." [LA Weekly] [Photo: Facebook]
