Our internal trend-o-meter rang loudly not long ago when we heard cocktail club Evoe was staging a shindig to celebrate kelp-based cocktails. We missed that event, but now we hear the boozesters have teamed up with David Santos and Louro restaurant for a $65 seaweed-centric meal with kelp-y drink pairings ($20 extra), happening Wednesday. So, what’s the big deal — is kelp the new kale or something? Maybe!
And while we’re on the subject, here’s some utterly gratuitous food porn from Louro’s Black and White Truffle Dinner — uni kissed with a drizzle of white truffle oil, quail egg atop briny-sweet hamachi, creamy risotto with ribbons of lardo and lashing of white truffle, impossibly unctuous chicken ragu, foie gras beignets just begging to be popped in your mouth…. Not bad for a Monday night.
The dinner was at once an extension of Dave Santos’ Um Segredo supper club, and the debut of Louro’s Monday night supper club-style (BYO!) dinners, which they’re calling Nostra Messa (“our table”).
