When we came across the concept of underground supper clubs popping up around town, our heads went into fantasy overload. Are they like a secret cult of foodies and oenophiles who meet up in abandoned factories on the outskirts of town? Or do they take over coffee shops at dusk and become all-night parties with strobe lights and thumping beats? Well it turns out we may have been a little too creative in our musings of underground supper clubs. In reality, it’s simply a great idea for individuals who are passionate about food to meet others and enjoy a delicious meal in the meantime.
We recently read about O.N.C.E. (One Night Culinary Events) via the Leather District Gourmet, a dynamo of a woman whom we met at Sandrine’s Bistro last month. Her take on positives (gathering with fellow foodies!) and negatives (no health code inspections) is spot on. Not that you should worry about any health code violations, seeing as passing the tests doesn’t stop the mice from tormenting us at X restaurant. The menu for the March 1st O.N.C.E. looks pretty tantalizing, and at $50 per person, it’s a reasonable meal in comparison to most Boston restaurants. The link to read more and sign up is below, so hop on the train quick because we’re guessing it will fill up pretty fast.
