For an exclusive, gourmet dinner — that’s not in Park City — there’s SLC POP.
Utah chefs Katie Weinner and Mike Burtis have scheduled two special dinners next week to introduce Utahns to their new "pop up" restaurant business that hosts private, multi-course dining experiences at homes, businesses, coffee shops or gardens.
These 10-course "modernist chef" dinners will Friday and Saturday, Jan. 25 and 26, at Salt Lake City’s Nata Gallery, 29 E. 400 South. Seatings are available at 7 p.m., 7:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Cost is $75 per person, includes tax but not tip.
Weinner, a culinary instructor with the Art Institute of Salt Lake, and Burtis, a culinary graduate, both worked on The Mist project, a pop up restaurant that took place last year in Salt Lake City. Since then, the chefs have been working to turn the pop-up restaurant idea into a local business. Earlier this year, they successful collected more than $5,000 through Kickstarter, to remodel the Nata gallery and make it a home for their culinary project.
At SLC POP, the two chefs will use "molecular gastronomy" when preparing each dish, resulting in food that offers both a visual and sensory surprise. The Indian papadum "taco" pictured here is just one example.
