Komodo Restaurant Launch Party

On Wednesday night the Komodo team invited 200 Elite Yelpers, friends, family and, for some crazy reason, me, out for the launch of their very first brick-and-mortar restaurant in the heart of the Pico Kosher Corridor. Attendees were invited to sample a glimpse of what the restaurant plans to offer when it opens its doors next week.

Among the offerings:
- Bacon Wrapped Dates
- Tomato Burrata with Basil and Mozarella Cheese
- Grilled Cheese with Olive Tapenade
- Mini Crabcakes with Jalapeno Aioli
- Indonesian Pork Satay
- Grilled Cajun Shrimp
- Tuna Roll with Caviar

Komodo - 8809 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles
