Yesterday, Boqueria's Yann de Rochefort announced his replacement for chef Seamus Mullen, an import from Barcelona by way of Miami, Marc Vidal. But what of chef Mullen? It's still unclear where he'll land permanently, but we do know where he'll be on October 21.
Mullen has signed on to cook at The Feast, a three night pop-up event from Alan Philips at a "yet to be announced Lower East Side location." It's a followup to this year's earlier pop-up dinner event, The Hunger, which received fairly mixed reviews. The theme this time around: The Roaring 20’s: Speakeasy and Steakhouse. Thus the menu will be a "modern and seasonal interpretation of a 1920’s chophouse" and Mullen is apparently getting his inspiration from the '21 Club' of 1922, when it was still a speakeasy downtown. So, if pop-ups are your bag, request resys here (it's $85 plus tax and tip for all food and cocktails), or check out Gilt City at 10 AM when they do a special sale.
