Though her own kitchen may be less chaotic than the one she worked in during the first season of Top Chef Masters, when it comes to her menu, Anita Lo uses the same skill and motivation that got her to the show’s Champions’ Round. Her Asian roots and her mastery of French cooking techniques are both evident in the restaurant’s American Nouveau cuisine. For one vegetarian entree, she combines artichoke gnocchi, lemon confit, and niçoise olives. For another, she sears foie gras and pairs it with soup dumplings. She pan roasts chicken in sherry, white truffle, and pig’s feet and sautés cobia fillets with caviar. Unlike a hospital called Uncle Jimmy’s Organ Hut, the name of the restaurant is appropriate: "Annisa" means “woman” in Arabic, and the restaurant features not only a female executive chef, but also a wine list that highlights wines from female vintners and vineyard owners.
