Alex Stupak, chef and co-owner of Empellón Cocina — a newly announced James Beard Award semifinalist — sends word that the restaurant will host the second of its Push Project dinners early next month. For round two, Stupak will cook a nine-course meal with Jordan Kahn, chef of Red Medicine in Los Angeles. The two chefs, who happen to go way back, will mix up the sweet, savory, and perhaps even bittersweet with a menu that promises a lot of new material, but also a good look at their past experiences at restaurants like wd~50, the French Laundry, and Alinea. Dinner is $125 per person; all the details you need are here. [Empellón Cocina, Earlier, Related]
