Sous Rising 3rd Visit — Chicago (11/2013)


I made one last trek to Sous Rising to attend their 2nd to last dinner as a guestaurant.  They hope to open a brick-and-mortar dining room in a few months.  Originally, they had announced their final dinners to be in October.  Unfortunately, my schedule did not work to get me out to Chicago during that time.  But they eventually posted an additional dining slot the first Friday in November, which I could attend, so I made plans for a quick trip.

There were to be 10 of us for dinner.  A few were rescheduled from prior attempts, and no one was a repeat diner except for me.  My first time was in early spring and the second visit was in late spring.  I was eagerly anticipating what might be in store for a fall menu, especially if it was to be one of the final meals offered in this format.

Sous Rising — Chicago (3/2013)



Sous Rising Chicago is a “guestaurant” I read about in an email newsletter article about pop-ups and guestaurants around the world.  In this case, the people behind Sous Rising Chicago have a waiting list/subscription where  you can sign up for notifications when table slots are available for the selected evenings they serve (usually twice per week now).  From the description of past meals, I thought this would be in line with my cuisine palate these days. You purchase your slot in advance for a specific date (PayPal or credit card), and on the day before (at least in my case), you get an email with directions to their location (their apartment in urban Chicago) and the planned menu (so you can bring your own wine or other beverages).  Dinner starts at around 7 pm.
