After Alex Stupak and his former boss cook Thanksgiving dinner together at Empellón Cocina on Thursday, they’ll perform an encore. The chefs have just announced that to push themselves even harder, they’re executing a second “spontaneous,” themeless dinner on Friday, November 8. “We have no agenda other than to huddle up with our team after Thursday’s service, jot down some ideas, and then rush to make them a reality the very next day,” writes Stupak. “I can’t back down from a challenge from my old boss, so here we go.” Tickets cost $325 per person, which includes food, drinks, tax, and tip, and you can sign up here.
