On Friday, March 28th, Chefs Samuel Monsour and Mark O'Leary will combine culinary forces to deliver "The Future of Junk Food," a unique culinary pop-up experience designed to re-imagine and challenge the "Junk Food" concept. Created in partnership with Kitchensurfing, the online marketplace where chefs connect with the world to sell their skills, goods and services, this seven-course pop up dinner will recreate some of the most iconic and beloved junk food favorites in an entirely culinary-driven fashion. An emphasis will be on creating food with whole, nutrient-dense ingredients rather than the preservatives, additives and other toxic ingredients found in junk food.
Equally as unique as the concept will be its setting, an intimate and opulent "bar within a bar" known as the Ruby Bar hidden within the Emerald Lounge in Revere Hotel Boston Common. The dinner is the first in a six-part pop up series, taking place throughout the year. Each dinner will feature a seven-course tasting of "junk-food" inspired dishes prepared by the two chefs alongside cocktails created by Emerald's resident bar manager, Teodora Bakardzhieva. Each seating will accommodate 12 people with prices set at $125.00 per person. The event series showcases the Kitchensurfing model of connecting chefs directly with active diners while allowing chefs a creative outlet to try new endeavors.
Friday, March 28th - two seatings will be offered at 6pm and 9pm. The forthcoming pop-up dinners are scheduled for May 9th, June 20th, August 1st, September 12th and October 24th.
Tickets are $125.00 per person and include a seven-course menu and cocktail pairings. Tickets must be purchased prior to the event at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-future-of-junk-food-part-i-tickets-10896165725.
