Arson

In 2017, Katrina Iglesias, Adam Hughes, and chef and Barcelona native Deme Lomas opened Arson two doors down from their first venture, Niu Kitchen. The centerpiece of Arson is the Josper, a charcoal-burning grill/oven hybrid that influences Lomas’ gastronomy. Whiffs of Asia and South America rise off of the one-page menu, which includes about 20 dishes. Mainstays include charbroiled oyster with ponzu and rice vinegar mayo; Argentine shrimp with smoked paprika, tequila, and quebracho charcoal; and “Duck 2 Ways,” which comes charbroiled and smoked with apple textures and honey-mustard bread. New Normal: Arson and Niu Kitchen have combined in order to accommodate more outdoor seating. It’s a win-win for guests who can now order from both menus.
