When Graham Elliot teams up with Seoul Sausage Co. chef/owner Chris Oh in Los Angeles to hunt down off-the-wall hidden speakeasies in Going Off the Menu, some craziness is sure to go down. The two manage to wrangle the secret password at a liquor store with a hidden gourmet deli in the back, discover an underground supper club featuring illegal cheese smuggled in from France, and stumble on an unmarked '50s cocktail lounge down a sketchy alley in grungy downtown.
The best moment? Chris drinking out of a huge copper swan at retro cocktail bar Birds & Bees. He asks for the most outlandish, gaudiest '50s drink possible, and that's what he gets. The swan-shaped vessel is filled with a ton of ice and a mix of secret liquors and ingredients—an over-the-top concoction that definitely requires two hands to drink.
Watch the video above to get the inside scoop on L.A.'s underground food scene. And don't miss Graham's endless puns, either. (Who knew he was such a comedian?)
