On Wednesday, June 21st, Cliff Chi (Noah’s Cafe) and Kiko Nakata (Tall Shadow Bakery) are coming together for a one-night-only multi-course dinner with drink pairings – and if you want to attend, you should buy tickets now!
We love a good collaboration dinner for the explosion of creativity that results when chefs step outside of their culinary routines to merge talents and cooking styles. Because fun and imagination are the baselines for Chi and Nakata, we expect their upcoming Snack Party event to be a guaranteed good time. Bonus: this pop-up, which falls on the Summer Solstice, takes place just a few blocks from English Bay, making it nicely situated for a post-dinner stroll to watch the sun go down and the season begin.
Have a look at the proposed menu:
