Gioacchino Passalaqua and Claudio Ruta will be giving everybody an authentic Taste of Sicily at the Palmer’s Market Pop-up Restaurant. Pick from Palmer’s Market Site. 

We’ve written about plenty of pop-ups, but how about a pop-up where the chefs come from halfway across the world to take part in a two day experience? Yup, that’s happening at Palmer’s Market in Darien! The dates are January 25 and January from 7:30-9:30 on both nights. For $80 you will get a complete four-course BYOB meal. Continue reading

Chef Plum takes over Edmond Town Hall for next installment of Dinner Underground

24 Feb

PlumUndergroundWS

One of our favorite chefs here in Connecticut is hosting another event in his Dinner Underground series, but this time around it’s in a brand new spot. Yup, Chef Plum and the Plum Luv Foods crew will be taking over Edmond Town Hall (45 Main St.) in Newtown on March 8 from 7 until 11:30.

What can you expect? Well, to be frank: an awesome time. We’ve been to many of Plum’s pop-ups (Butcher’s Best, Williams-Sonoma, and his most recent Sourcopia at Two Roads) so we’re kinda experts. Actually, that kinda makes us groupies, huh? You can expect excellent service, great food and great wine pairings to go with each course. And, when you leave, you’ll actually leave full because portions are always nicely sized.

Chef Plum Takes Over Williams-Sonoma for Latest Dinner Underground – Danbury, CT

Some shots from the last Dinner Underground at Williams-Sonoma

Chef Plum, his trusty Sous Chef Justin Kern, and the Plum Luv Foods crew are back for some more action with Dinner Underground at Williams-Sonoma in Danbury.  This do-not-miss event is taking place on 5/4/14 and starts at 6:30.  Tickets come to $74.84 after a processing fee, but the meal is definitely worth it…don’t delay, either, they are almost sold out.  Not only will you get 7 courses, you’ll also get nice pours of wine, access to the Williams-Sonoma store after hours with a special discount, and maybe even a few surprises.


We went to the last dinner (the first pop-up dinner ever held at a WS) and had so much fun and, ironically, sat with the same awesome people that we sat with when we went to a Dinner Underground session that took place over a year ago.  Our favorite dishes are pictured above:  scallops with pork belly and a killer do-it-yourself polenta plate that featured three different toppings.

This time around, Chef Plum is featuring a menu that we want to devour bit by bit and of course he’s using pork belly:

Amuse Bouche – pickled veggie plate

Smoked Scallop “Crudo” with Celery Leaves and Fennel Pollen (ode to John Currence)

Asian Fried Chicken, Jalapeno and Onion

Compressed Ahi and Watermelon with Frisee

Crispy Beet Fries with Black Garlic Aioli, Birch Beer, White Bean

Roasted Pork Belly, Red Chili and Beer Foam, Local Maple

Mikshake (they are leaving this as a surprise, can’t wait…)

Chef Plum Takes Dinner Underground Again with a Saranac Beer + BBQ Dinner – Newtown, CT

16 May

•••

Now that we finally have that warmer weather that we dream of during the colder months in Connecticut, we can look forward to BBQ season.  For some, BBQ season never ends, though.  The tailgate warriors, the backyard chefs who won’t allow a little annoying snow to ruin their plans of cooking up some burgers on the barbie.  But, whether you’re a BBQ expert, a novice, or just a BBQ eater, you’ve probably never had a BBQ meal like the one that Chef Plum of Newtown, CT has planned out for Sunday, May 26 from 7 to 10.  He’s repurposed Butcher’s Best in Newtown as a pop up restaurant in his dining series called Dinner Underground.  Tickets are limited to just 30 people and cost $85.39 (that’s with the service fee) and you can buy them here.  So, you know how we work…this is where we explain why you need to get yourself to this event:
