Frank DeLoach put on a fantastic omakase-style pop-up dinner at The Playground last month. Guests sat at the bar and watched the restaurant's inventive sous chef assemble raw creations with fish flown in from Japan that same morning. It seemed like a rare treat, but luckily for those who couldn't make it (and even those who could), he's doing it again.
Next Tuesday, May 15, DeLoach is hosting Bites: From The Garden, a multi-course dinner featuring the freshest springtime produce.
Here's a sample menu:
Coriander, Cumin, Purslane
Fine Herbs, Sherry, Chicken Skin
Country Ham, Aromatics
Burnt Cucumber, Olive Oil, Pork Fat
Saba, Beets, Oregano
Jarred Dooley, The Playground's director of libations, will be pouring drinks to pair with the dishes. The night's seatings are 5:30, 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. Dinner is $35 per person. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to make reservations.
