The raging trend of underground dinners, secret supper clubs, and pop-up restaurants continue. The most recent chef up, I should say under, is John Tesar. While he waits to finalize details on Spoon, the restaurant he plans for Preston Center, he’s keeping in culinary shape by hosting a series of underground dinners. Last Saturday night, Tesar popped up at The Milestone Culinary Center where a sell-out crowd of around 55 people got up close and personal with JT. The menu was classic Tesar with a few novelty acts thrown in. The wine was classic Scott Barber.
Below, every picture tells the story.
Unfortunately my dessert of Peanut Butter Mousse, Chocolate Peanut Crumble, Cocoa Nib Coulis, Caramel Cream & Chocolate Ice Cream was eaten too quickly for my camera to capture it.
I was an invited guest at this event. Great service was provided throughout the meal by the staff of Milestone Culinary Arts Center.
With Spoon Bar and Kitchen due to open this summer, Tesar may host three more underground dinners in the interim. E-mail here to get on the announcement list and expect all of them to sell out.
