The time has come for the final “Pop-up Restaurant Experience” before the holiday season. Yearly this event has been the most difficult to plan. I am fully aware that you have a ton of holiday dinners to attend. This means you are very likely to eat standard holiday dishes, many many times (smile). Well, I want to change all of that. We are going to have a blast! For the final popup of 2014, we present “A Chef Inspired Holiday”.
The inspiration for this dinner came from the numerous people that have told me how they dread going to holiday dinner parties. Their reasons are hilarious: Too much cheap wine, too much dry turkey and waaay too many wanna be Food Network dishes. So to answer that, we offer you these promises:
- No Turkey
- Plenty of Great Wine
- And for a few hours you just may forget about the drudgery of the holidays
With regard to the food, we will be using some ingredients that you’re used to having this time of year but we’re going to have some fun. A few of the courses are:
Fennel Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Braised Cabbage & Apricot Mustard
Angolotti Pasta with Morels, Favas and Smoked Peacevine Cherry Tomato Sauce
Tiki’s Flatbread – Duck Bacon, Melted Leeks, Sweet Corn, Taleggio, Truffle Cream & Merken
As always we will serve at least 8 courses* and the wine is included. Something special for this pop-up is our True VIP Experience.
For VIP guests, the evening starts with a pre-event private dining session with Chef Julius. Guests will be seated at VIP Tables for appetizer courses and Chef-crafted custom cocktails based on your spirit of choice.
Also, VIP guests will receive a customized Gift Bag stocked with all the things one needs to get them through the holiday entertaining season: two of Chef Julius’ seasonings blends, wine, olive oil, and one of Chef Julius’ favorite cooking products from Epicurean Butter, Texas Pete Brand Sauces, or Nature Isle Tropical Gourmet.
