How the fuck do you make curry in 30 minutes? You want the curry to taste like an Arcade Fire song; lots of layers, orchestral. Unfortunately it’s going to sound like 14 guys all playing guitar solos.
Three weeks ago, Mr. Puck unveiled an entirely reinvented Spago Beverly Hills, with a décor he describes as “edgy,” a soundtrack of Arcade Fire and Spoon, and a menu sprinkled with adventurous small-plate offerings that have some of his bluer-hair customers wincing.
Most people know Mac McCaughan as the guitarist from Superchunk, or as one of the co-founders of Merge Records, home to Arcade Fire, Spoon, She & Him, Neutral Milk Hotel, M Ward and more. But did you also know that he is married to a James Beard award winning chef, and one of the guys from Arcade Fire says her restaurant is the reason the band signed to Merge?
