In a town where security clearances seem to grow on trees, it’s always nice to be the first on your block to find something new. This may not exactly be the lost Watergate tapes, but the D.C. Supper Club put on by Artisa Kitchen is shrouded in just as much mystery.
Held monthly, the dinners do not follow the usual supper club template. Instead of a revolving door of chefs, the meal is held at a different Washington-area art gallery each time. Only after you book your meal are you informed of the top secret location. No matter the site, chef Bryon Brown (of molecular gastronomy powerhouse Jaleo) prepares a 12-course farmers market-sourced tasting menu accompanied by six wine pairings ($90).
There’s only room for 28 diners, and they are completely booked for the July and August events. Next up is the September 30th date, followed by a vegan supper on October 7th. It’s a great option for those who like their dinner with a little intrigue…but you didn’t hear it from me.
