"The 'restaurant-within-a-restaurant' concept, also found at Jose Andres’s six-seat Minibar in Washington’s Cafe Atlantico, gives chefs a chance to show off their artistry and, in least one case, their mastery of liquid nitrogen. At Volt, four diners sit inside the busy kitchen, so close to the action they could be asked to dice an onion or two. At Minibar, six people sit on bar chairs in front of a counter."
