Sara's NOLA - new chef (Posted on 10/2/12 at 10:48 pm)
Article sounded promising/interesting, not living there at the moment and hoping someone will go check out the new deal and see if its just a chef following fads or if there is some legit execution here.
quote: A new menu here, however, is different from what Sara's regulars have come to expect. There's a hanger steak prepared in the style of Korean bulgogi, for instance, and short ribs prepared sous vide (a culinary technique using vacuum packs and very low heat).

I've never eaten there and tried twice. Just couldn't make it happen. But as far as following fads, sous vide has taken a large step in the last couple of years although it's been around for quite awhile. It's trendy to say it is how you are preparing a dish same as bulgogi which is just marinated grilled meat.
I think people put too much stock in a name. I'd rather just say " I'm slow cooking short ribs and grilling marinated hanger steak."
If he's not following fads in the cooking, he's following fads in the terminology.
