Kogi at Damon & Pythias?

I call bulls$#%. It's on the menu, The logo looks SORT of the same but it's two different red logos in two separate places, neither of which match. They advertise short ribs and burritos. I meant to get a picture but by the time I left I was so pissed off I forgot.
I emailed the Kogi people. I've never personally had a Kogi taco, because they've had drama in OC and I never have an hour and a half when I can go stand on line. But people here that I trust say they're tasty, and it pisses me off when places that suck rip off places that don't.
Unless Kogi are actually in league with these people, in which case uff da.
I think part of the problem here is that the Kogi folks chose to use a rather generic name to brand their product. Sort of like if a guy called his BBQ restaurant "BBQ", he wouldn't be able to tell all the other restaurants that serve smoked-and-sauced meat to stop calling it "BBQ".
If the logo is similar enough to cause confusion, that's another matter.
I heard back from Alice ("Aliiiiiiiiice") at Kogi. No connection whatsoever. I hope they give D&P hell.
