The Cleveland is making good use of its newly reopened garden by hosting a series of alfresco Sunday night guest-chef dinners. Each meal will cost just $25, which includes one plate of food and one beer or glass of wine — and the beer is a custom collaboration with Finback Brewery in Astoria. The roster includes Fritzl’s Lunchbox’s Dan Ross (August 3), Pok Pok’s Alicia Parter (August 10), the Meat Hook’s Brent Young (August 17), King Noodle’s Nick Subic (August 24), and chef Max Sussman’s brother, Eli, of Mile End (August 31). Even better: Tickets will be available at the door, as well as online, so you can be spontaneous.
