Sugar savant Dominique Ansel will debut his dessert-only tasting menu project Unlimited Possibilities (aka U.P.) in midst of the peak summer heat. On July 17, a table tied up with cables will descend from the ceiling on the second floor of Ansel's new bakery, Dominique Ansel Kitchen small groups of diners will work their way through an eight course all-sweet menu, complete with cocktail pairings. Fittingly, Ansel's first menu focuses on first experiences — first kiss, first dance, first job.
Getting a seat at U.P. requires some advanced planning. Here are the essentials: tickets cost $75, and another $35 for cocktails, reservations must be made in pairs, and U.P. is only open on weekends for just two seatings, 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.. Tickets for the inaugural weekend, July 17-19, will go on sale on May 25 at noon eastern. Tickets for future seatings will go on sale on Mondays, seven weeks out.
