The Mei Mei team is collaborating with Washington Square Tavern alum Chris Cronin, who is currently working on opening his own place in Brookline called Project 202, to host a pop-up event called Overlooked: Using the Underutilized. Local ceramics artist Adria Katz will also be on hand to provide "a touch of art."
The dinner, which takes place on January 19 at Mei Mei, will feature "thoughtfully prepared, underutilized local food — think laying hens, think seafood charcuterie, think winter veggies chock full of nutrients." Looks like there'll be some venison sausage. There will also be beverage pairings from Jack's Abby and other small brewers.
The $125 ticket includes a seven-course meal with alcohol pairings, gratuity, and a hand-thrown plate to take home.
As previously reported, Project 202 will be a "neighborhood restaurant and provisions shop, committed to sustainability and traceability," located in Brookline Village.
