Popping Up on the Bowery: “Abode” From Contestants on ABC’s “The Taste”
If you’ve passed through the intersection of Bowery and Kenmare lately, you might have wondered what’s up with the sleek new storefront at 168 Bowery. Here’s one answer: a special pop-up dinner series called “ABODE” from Gregg Drusinsky and Sarah Ashley Schiear, competitors in the ABC series, “The Taste.” Next Thursday-Saturday, they’ll be hosting intimate, five-course gatherings at the Old Bowery Station, the new event space run by the owners of Openhouse Gallery and the Nom Wah Tea Parlor.
On the $85 menu, which includes wine pairings, are dishes such as fluke poke, a roasted shiitake salad with black garlic, a curry lobster bisque, cumin lamb and passion fruit panna cotta. There are two seatings with only 24 reservations available at each seating. Previous pop-up dinners at Bowery Station have sold out quickly. Click here if you’re interested in reserving a spot.
