Dining Out, a tragedy in three acts.
Act One: Hip Belltown bistro (three-hour wait).
Act Two: New Capitol Hill hotspot (too many kinks).
Act Three: ID adventure (you’ll never go back).
Restaurant circuit feel played? Try finagling an invitation to One Pot, renegade chef Michael Hebberoy’s new series of underground dinners.
Part dinner party and part theater of the absurd, the setting is an unexpected location (a coffee shop, a frat house, The Hideout). A cast of rotating chefs (like Sitka & Spruce’s Matt Dillon and Gypsy’s Gabriel Claycamp) creates family-style meals in which the main dish is cooked in one pot. Past dinners have included cider-braised chicken and 30-hour roasted pork with culinary readings on the side.
For reservations, send an e-mail with your name and the number of your party. Then cross your fingers and wait.
It’s quite a production. But all the world’s a stage.
And you’re certainly a player.
