How many stunts can you fit into one night of dining? Let's try three big ones. A pop-up restaurant where the chef is a 15 year-old and the food will consist of "molecular gastronomic masterpieces, inspired by pop artists including Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Jeff Koons." Win, to the thousandth degree.
Alan Philips, the organizer of serial pop-up event The Feast has enlisted teenage chef Greg Grossman "who recently returned from working with Ferran Adria," to run the show. And the dinners will take place over three nights beginning on March 10 in the construction site of Midtown's Sanctuary Hotel, which, by the way, will be transformed into a "living and breathing work of pop art." Says the designer, "Guests will feel like they are dining inside an artist like Andy Warhol’s mind circa 1982." Go here for resys. $95 per person for four courses, plus tax and gratuity.
Update: Chef Grossman emails to correct some inaccuracies in the press release. He ate at El Bulli, and never worked there. And he dislikes the term molecular gastronomy.
