You’ve surmounted Schwa and manhandled Moto. Your next culinary conquest? One Sister Underground Dining.
Head to chef Iliana Regan’s (One Sister Pierogi) Andersonville abode and snag one of ten spots at her communal table. After greeting you at the door, Regan retreats to her culinary lab, leaving you to chat with fellow foodies and sip from your flask (spot-on pairing suggestions are provided in advance).
Balancing molecular gastronomy (an everlasting gobstopper pomegranate shell encircling egg yolk and date puree) and simplicity (freshly foraged ramps, fava beans, honeydew sorbet), she unveils each of the ten elaborately imaginative courses one by one (and more than a few extras).
A perfectly paired sound track is in the works (gangsta rap enhances the “Xplicit” foie gras; “Octopus’s Garden” plays alongside root beer-infused squid).
Regan plans to parlay the dinners into a full-fledged restaurant to be called Mermaid Cafe, so reserve seats while they’re hot.
For reservations, call 773-598-0602 or e-mail email@example.com, $90 suggested donation, plus gratuity. Upcoming dinners take place on June 11, 12, 25, and 26.
