Who doesn't love a good cover song? Heck, sometimes covers are way better than the originals they're meant to pay homage to. Recognizing that, the folks from Noise Pop and graffEats have created an exclusive dinner party called Covers: A Culinary Tribute, held at a top-secret city locale with six courses that salute the world's best chefs and musical minds.
People clamoured so hard to get a seat at the first dinner on May 26th that it sold out–so organizers ended up adding a second dinner on Wednesday, May 25th at 7 pm. Here's how it works: the courses, prepared by graffEats chef Blair Warsham, are takes on signature dishes by the likes of Thomas Keller, Quince's Michael Tusk, Sursur Lee and more. Then, using the folks from Noise Pop's savvy, they'll pair songs (think Syd Barret's "Octopus", accompanying Keller's Grilled Octopus Tentacles with chorizo and green almonds) with dishes for a full sensory takeover. Clever, right?
Get your tickets–fast!–here before this one sells out too (the price even includes corkage fee). If you're feeling like going all out, upgrade to VIP status, which affords you pre-dinner cocktails and decadent wine pairings for each course of the night. Once you score a seat, you'll get clued in on the location. Come early, come hungry!
