But of course we are “popping up” again. We couldn’t fit everyone in on the first one, so we present Part 2 – destination Paris! On August 26th, is the second incarnation of Chef Julius Russell’s Pop Up Restaurant Experience. We are so happy about the demand for what we are doing. Our location is the same, Westminster HD, located at 1045 West Madison. The guys Mike and Jake are great and have been fully supportive in making sure this event series continues.

The scene at the 1st Pop Up on July 29th. Full gallery below.

So here is how it works. We choose a theme and menu. We decide on how many courses and then add a few more, infusing all our passion on to every plate. There are plenty of wine choices and we also serve non-alcoholic beverages. We work to keep the food coming out on a tight schedule but in reality, some dishes take longer than others but we’re streamlining the process.

The Theme – “Summer In Paris”

The Vibe – we keep a little jazzy playlist in the background and the volume is low enough  that you don’t have to yell over it. You are also surrounded by abstract impressionist, Chef Julius makes a few appearances to discuss the menu, and we have an expert on hand to tell you all about the wine.

The Tickets – Since we have limited seating, there are only 50 spaces available per event. There are two levels of pricing $80 (VIP) and $65 (Dinner). All tickets MUST be purchased in advance, via the website. Tickets sales have already started for this event, so don’t delay in reserving your spot.

There are a minimum of 10 courses but the chef creates more for the VIP tickets holders.

Here is a menu sneak peek:

Heirloom Carrot Bisque – Crab & Saffron Crouton
Potato Croquettes – Duck Fat, Heirloom Pepper Aioli, Shaved Pecorino
Confit – Chicken vs. Duck, Crostini, Triple Cream Brie
Lamb – Braised, Late Summer Root Vegetables, Fennel Pancakes
Dessert – Tiki’s Flourless Chocolate Cake w/Grand Marnier Sauce

    I had the pleasure of attending “Summer In Paris,” and I must say that I am now completely spoiled! I can still vividly see each course as if it were just placed in front of me.

    If you have not tasted Chef Julius/Chef Tiki’s cuisine….you are really doing yourself a disservice. I encourage you to keep your eyes out for the next event because I know I can’t wait!
