If in translation something is lost, can something new be gained, too?
When asked about the “Lost in Translation” title of his February 4 pop-up dinner with Dinner Lab in Chicago, Chef Bryan Collante said he doesn’t want guests to take the dishes too literally: the menu was inspired by his Filipino upbringing. By day, he is the executive chef of Untitled Supper Club, 111 W. Kinzie.
With 100 guests, this dinner was Chef Bryan's largest pop-up of the four he's done with Dinner Lab. Brooks Hart of Dinner Lab said the three-and-a-half-year-old start-up tries to create "something magical" with every dinner. In 33 cities across the US, Dinner Lab's curation team finds talent "who may not be out there" in the greater dining public's awareness.
