L Train Lunch

Quite possibly the ballsiest interpretation of the "popup restaurant" phenomenon to date: 12 guests were treated to a full 6 courses on an NYC subway commute from 8th Avenue to Canarsie, with a new dish being served every third stop. Courses were plated by teams either on the platform, or in the train itself, and served to guests on custom-built straphanger tables. The exquisitely planned and executed event went off (amazingly) without a hitch. The Great Gatsby was read, diners were stuffed, onlookers drooled.


The menu:

6th Avenue: Hamchi Crudo, Bone Marrow, Trout Roe, Laproaig, Sweet Lime

3rd Avenue: Foie en Brioche, Port Wine, Raisin,

Lorimer Street: Ramp Soup, Black Garlic, Cippolini, Morel, Thyme

Morgan Avenue: Petit Filet Mignon, Pomme Puree, Asparagus
