last night we finally did an underground chef dat dinner in deep ellum.
until last night.
what an underground dinner is - at least the chef dat way – is you get on an email list and every week there is a dinner – or a couple of dinners – that you can attend by giving your cc number and reserving your space. space is extremely limited. you do this without knowing what is going to be on the menu or knowing the location of the dinner. you kind of know the area, but not exact location. so if you’re one of of these types that can’t go with the flow -in terms of being a picky eater- this is not for you.
chef dat is david anthony temple a 28 year old chef who has been doing this for 3 years and has built quite a following. he has chef dat dinners now in new orleans (where he’s from), hawaii and ft. worth (new).
we went with the st. peter’s – two of the nicest people we know – and a lot of fun! they own hypnotic donuts in east dallas (dangerously close to our house!)
will we do it again? heck yes! great music, drinks, food and company – we had a blast. chef dat came out before every course and told us what is in it, how and where he got it and how he created it. local ingredients, unique and creative ideas and delicious. what a fun night.
