The food adventurists behind Underground Eats have gotten themselves a pretty fantastic venue for their next event: the McKittrick Hotel.
Their surrealist dinner, 'Absurdity at the McKittrick Hotel' will be a movable feast, as chefs carrying a whole suckling pig will be serving their pork from room to room. Like Sleep No More, there will be certain theatrical elements to the meal, including actors in period costumes to wander the hotel with guests (though not actors from Sleep No More). And the setting is similarly out of time, supposedly taking place on the "eve of the 1939 World's Fair."
Underground Eats partnered with Chef Marc Murphy (Landmarc, Ditch Plains) for the event, and promise that "No two guests will have the same experience."
If you've been to the McKittrick for Sleep, you'll remember how the grand space and nightmarishly ornate atmosphere make it seem like someone is waiting to attack you behind every door. So when organizers promise that a lobster is supposed to make a "bold appearance," we get concerned (and hungry).
The dinner takes place on June 3rd, from 6:30pm-9:30pm. Tickets are $175 per person for unlimited food and drink, and $250 for VIP tickets.
