Pop-up dinners have become a unique alternative for chefs to showcase their dishes in a more intimate setting – they’ve literally been popping up all over the place! PlaceSetting, however, is out to explore a new type of supper club with a very unique twist.
Courtney Nichols of Disco Dining Club and Chef Gabriel Cappelli (formerly of The Edmon, Saint Martha, & The Dressing Room) are taking an already unique concept and elevated it by holding each event at a private residence in Los Angeles, but here comes the twist. The menu, cocktails and performances will all be inspired by the era and history of said residence. These residences aren’t just your average track home either, with their next pop-up dinner location taking place at a Westdale 1947 mid-century modern located in West LA. This 8-course dinner will be prepared and cooked utilizing appliances that the home provides such as the Crock-Pot you’ll see below in the photos.
Don’t be intimidated by the neighborhood as this dinner is meant to be casual, relaxing and fun. You’ll walk right into a cocktail upon arrival along with snacks to compliment it. There will also be stories of Courtney’s Grandmother (who passed the house down to her) in between courses along with bottles of wine to pass around come dinner time.
All around it sounds like a very exciting time and we hope to attend one of these in the near future. Future dates are setup for a 1920s Hollywood home on the Paramount backlot and a private residence in Mt. Washington. Tickets are $125 for an 8 course meal and the chef guarantees that you WILL NOT leave hungry.
