For Francophones, the mere name of Chef Galen Zamarra's second restaurant evokes the rustic countryside of French Provence: a mas is a country-style farmhouse in the Provençal tradition, and a grillade is the French answer to a barbecue, inciting images of entire small townships coming together to feast and fête as dinner cooks over hot coals and local kindling. Zamarra's new restaurant builds upon this theme, offering a seasonal menu of dishes, prepared over an open fire burning with locally sourced woods – apple, quince, grapevines, oak, old wine barrels – each of which impart a unique flavor to the variety of menu items: whole black bass in a salt and herb rub, split lobsters, grilled langoustines, baby squid and more. In an era following the molecular gastronomy revolution, the emphasis at Mas (la grillade) is on simple preparation. The wood is stored on site in a converted newsstand, and meats are butchered in-house, reinforcing the idea of a self-sufficient, traditional eating experience. The locally sourced meats and organic fires are the two key ingredients in what seems to be a formula that has people talking... and making reservations. -Emily Monaco
