Elemental at gasworks was opened with the sole intention of creating a dining experience we would like to have. The conventions of fine dining, (regularly updated tasting menu, paired wines, proper, not "hi my name is..." service, a place that isn't looking to give or receive validation) without the intrusive explanations and extreme expense. We have five tables and portable burners, we have negligible signage and we have never advertised. Concessions have not been made for hand-holding. It was not intended to be for everyone. We change our menu every week and try to provide interesting thoughtful food that we would like people to try without preconceived notions. If what we do is not for you that is acceptable to us, it was never meant to be anything more than our ideal place.
