Bite Club Experiments With ‘Sous Vide’ Before a Brief Hiatus


Bite Club, the French Laundry of “secret” supper clubs, tells us that it’s being bumped from its townhouse space until next year (the owners are moving back in for a while), and its last dinner of the season will be this Sunday. For the occasion, the kids are playing with a sous vide device (they’ve been diligently studying Thomas Keller’s Under Pressure, and presumably got some pointers from the Per Se cooks that were on hand during the last dinner). There are four seats left, so be quick about e-mailing The menu follows.
