We know you can’t crash other people’s private events to taste our food. That’s why select Thursdays at 7 PM we open our doors for you to experience us in an intimate setting.
While foodies abound in Northeast LA, chef-driven tasting menus with boutique wine pairings are more scarce. We're offering Eastsiders a chance to stay close to home while experiencing dishes not offered on the standard menu directly at the chef’s table.
Past selections have ranged from hay smoked pheasant, tortellini and rhubarb jam to pork belly confit with cauliflower gnudi, nasturtium pesto, sunchoke granola, date mascarpone and coddled egg.
“We are excited to offer Northeast Los Angeles an elevated dining experience that features memorable cuisine but also celebrates the power of a meal in bringing people together in a communal experience,” roomforty founder Steve Fortunato said.“Typically people are choosing a ‘communal dining experience’ or ‘innovative and elevated cuisine.’ We believe magic happens when both of those can be experienced at once.”
There will be one seating per date, for up to 12 people. Guests may purchase up to 6 tickets and enjoy a community dining experience with other attendees.
The menu is crafted by executive chef Libry Darusman to reflect the colors of the season with wine tastings of 2 oz. glasses paired to echo each of the five courses, as well as a complimentary welcome cocktail. Tickets are $75 per person with the optional wine pairing available at an additional $20 per person.
The party will be held at The Fig House, located in Northeast L.A., just a few miles north of downtown in Highland Park. We will send you an email with dinner details a few days before your dinner. We look forward to serving you!
Please arrive at 7:00 p.m. You'll enjoy a welcome beverage in our lounge and an opportunity to mingle with other guests. Dinner will start promptly at 7:20 in consideration of everyone’s time and commitment. We don’t want our guests to stress about traffic, so please don’t rush. If you are running late, just give us a call at 323-254-4100. We will keep your food warm to ensure you get the full experience.
If you are unable to come for some reason, let us know 48 hours in advance and you may transfer your tickets to another person or select another date for your dinner within the calendar year, subject to availability. Because these are ticketed events with a limited number of seats, tickets are non-refundable. Tickets expire December 31, 2017 if not used.
As a courtesy to everyone at the table, we ask that if you should get a call you take it in our lounge or outside the dining space. Otherwise, feel free to take as many photos as you like. We're on Instagram @roomforty.
Street parking is available on the east side Figueroa in front of the school and on the surrounding streets, though we highly suggest using a car service like Uber or Lyft to insure safety and ease of arrival.
