Underground pop-up restaurant: “Dinner & a Movie” in a downtown artists’ loft

For those who wanted to go to the last private-home-hosted dinner from underground chef David Weidman but who couldn’t get in (he had to turn about a dozen folks away), hoo boy are you in luck! Chef David is hosting another dinner, this time at the super-cool Downtown location known as Abundant Sugar.

This artist’s loft/warehouse/performance space will play host to his “Dinner & A Movie” event on March 14. For only $25 you get a gourmet dinner and a movie–Sergio Leone? The Godfather?–well, something Italian, as you’ll guess from the menu. It’s a super cool venue and an amazing chef, so find a babysitter, grab a date or a pal, and go
here to sign up (if you’re not on facebook, leave a comment & I’ll connect you with Chef David). Only twenty-five seats are available.

Menu:

Cold seafood Cioppino (clams, mussels and oysters steamed in vermouth with tomatoes, olives, anchovies and saffron)
Blood oranges and wild greens
Antipasti: 3 meats, 2 cheeses, marinated mushrooms, eggplant salad, white bean puree, bread
White lasagna in a cream sauce with caramelized garlic w/ yellow-foot chanterelles…OR…Penne with pancetta, Italian sausage, Chianti, garlic and tomatoes; meat balls (pork and beef with bread crumbs and Parmigiano in tomato sauce)
Assorted cheesecakes, coffee with Belgian chocolate, Cinnamon apples

  1. Hi, I’m interested in the dinner and movie event, but do not have Facebook (yes one of those people). Can you put me in touch with Chef David? I want to reserve two spots. Thanks!

  2. Dammit! This sounds like another great dinner, but once again I’m tied up that night. Please keep letting us know about these, as I definitely want to get to one. Eventually…

  3. I think I’d like to open up my house and host one of these. Just telling a few of my neighbors and I got the impression that they’d fill up the reser list before anyone else found out. Can you get him in touch with me too?

    Either that or we’ll just do another Iron Chef in the ‘hood…battle bacon was a huge hit.
