Roy Villacrusis and Top Chef Lindsay Autry: Sunday Supper/Monday Leftover Pop Up
|Villacrusis and Autry are co-hosting a Sunday Supper pop-up.|
The five-course Sunday supper and Monday "Leftovers" dinners, which will have the same menu both days, will feature ingredients from local farmers and purveyors. According to co-chef Villacrusis, the menu will be "dictated mostly by what we can get in the local markets, so even though we have a layout in our thoughts, it will be finished only a few days before the dinner".
Villacrusis said he met Autry while he was putting together his Ultimate Chef's dinner at the Four Seasons. The former executive chef at Michelle Bernstein's at the Omphoy, declined an invitation to participate in the event, and Villacrusis didn't know why until he saw her on Top Chef.
They met again at a Swank Farms luncheon and realized they were both passionate about using fresh, local ingredients and looking to experiment with pop-up dinners while shopping around for more permanent kitchens. They agreed that the space at Chef's Corp Cook Studios was the best venue for a joint pop-up and started making plans.
|Lindsay Autry will pop-up in Palm Beach Gardens for Sunday supper.|
The dinner is $115 per person (including tax and gratuity) and is limited to 60 guests per evening. Tickets can be purchased at lindsayautry.com.
What's next on the agenda for these two rising culinary stars? Look out for more pop-ups for both, including an underground sushi concept in West Palm Beach by former Kapow Noodle Bar chef Villacrusis. We couldn't get much from the secretive chef (isn't that what makes these pop-ups fun?), but he did mention that he's working on his own take on traditional omakase dining...and promises no tempura, teriyaki, or wacky rolls on the menu. We'll keep you posted!
