When we walked inside, it looked magical with all the pretty lights and the way the tables looked fancy. When we walked in, Katie the hostess sat us at the Chef's Table next to Lisa Wexler. She is a radio host at WFAS. She was very nice and she made lots of observations about the food with me. The Chef's Table was at the counter where all of the bloggers and radio people sit. It felt very special sitting there asking Chef Eric questions and watching them make the dishes. It was very inspiring sitting at the Chef's Table. There were seven courses. They had a lot of mixed flavors. We had pozole, fish tacos, duck mole, chili marinated steak, ribs, a pan roasted snapper and a dessert platter. Here let me tell you about some of the dishes.
Our first course was the pozole. There was roasted pork and hominy in a stew. The hominy was hard and grainy.The stew had Mexican and chili flavors and the lime gave it a citrus flavor. It was a dark brown. Our second course was a fish taco. There was a masa cracker, snapper, avocado, pickles, and a lime. It was a bit sour because of the pickles and the lime. The cracker was made with masa and water. It was very crunchy. The snapper was very tender and had a fried texture to it. It was very colorful with the sauces around it.
Then for the entrees, my favorite was the duck mole. There was duck and it had a corn pudding and there was rainbow chard too. Then Chef Eric gave us a bowl of crispy mushrooms and pumpkin seeds. The duck was tender and it was rare. The corn was creamy and it was really sweet. I don't like sweet but that was insane. The rainbow chard was very colorful but it still tasted like swiss chard, After we had the duck mole, we had a dessert platter and that was really yummy. I loved the panna cotta!
This was a very good experience and I would like to go to another pop-up restaurant. The experience was special because you are never going to go there again so you have to make the best of it.
