New Persian Pop-up event scheduled for July 21 at Harvest Market

Our monthly Sunday night pop-up dinners continue in July at a new venue -- the Harvest Market upstairs demo kitchen. Affectionately named "The Nook," this ultramodern space has a giant kitchen counter island that is perfect for both cooking and eating. With this pop-up event, we are inaugurating a new series called "Chef's Table" where 10 special guests are invited to a front-row seat right at the kitchen counter, where you can watch your dinner being prepared in front of your eyes. Each dish will be presented by the chef with notes on ingredients, preparation, and flavor profiles, as well as background information about its cultural history. Cooking techniques and modern shortcuts will also be discussed, and all your questions will be answered.

Persian cuisine is steeped in thousand-year-old traditions from an ancient empire that connected India and China with the West along the silk road. Famous for its creative use of spices like saffron, cardamom, and dried lime, this sophisticated cuisine is also known for using perfumed herbs, having complex flavors, and balancing contrasting flavor profiles. At this dinner, each course will also be paired with a specially selected wine designed to enhance your dining experience. 

Note: All of our pop-up events are all-inclusive prix fixe dinners. This means you get a multi-course dinner complete with wine and other beverage pairings all evening for one fixed price. Unlike at restaurants, all taxes and tips are included as well.

Seating is limited to 10 people, and the cost is only $70. Details and registration information:
