The menu includes:

Cedar planked summer vegetables

Beet and berries with red quinoa, avocado, and beet soil

Second Course

Grilled Radish salad with dates, apples, almonds, and onion

Third Course

Cream of celery soup with raisins, walnuts, and leafy tops.


Bail granita with strawberry powder

Fourth Course

Cauliflower steak with pickled hot peppers, olives, caper, herbs, and lemon

Fifth Course

Sorbet trio with blueberry, plum, and apricot

A second pop up - Around The World In Seven Days - is planning two events for July 9 and July 23 that feature cuisine inspired by dishes from countries like France, Benin, and Dominican Republic.

One of its July 9 menus includes three courses with a crab cake served over a bed of arugula; plantain pancakes served with scrambled tofu; and apple crisp.
