Today's LA Times spells Joseph Centeno's creation with an umlaut, as in ... b ä c o.

Chef Centeno, are you there?

Can you please let us know if that's the correct spelling?

Philologically inclined chow communards will appreciate feedback from you ( or anyone else in the loop ).

    yeah, it does have the ".." over the "a" at least according to the lunch menu.

      I needed to be told, others may too, that bäcos rhymes with "tacos".

        Yup. Me too. First time I saw it in print, sans diacritic, I thought it had something to do with bacon bits :)

      I really enjoyed that video. Sounds like they're still waiting on the liquor license, dang.

        In LA, that can take years :).

          Years? I don't think so.
          I believe he wanted to wait to get the license before doing the tasting menu, so hopefully he'll get it soon.
