Well, at least the first few incarnations of the monthly pop-up will focus on Sichuan cuisine before Black Trumpet delves into other foods from around the world, always keeping things kosher. The new pop-up launches this Thursday with a sold-out six-course meal at an undisclosed Cambridge location; interested parties can join the mailing list to hear about future meals. The gist of it, according to Black Trumpet's website: "We 'pop up' monthly in different locations in Boston and bring together people and good food for a night of excitement, good tastes and togetherness." Locations can be anything from "high ceilinged apartments to tucked away secret garden backyards."
Creators Gabe Fine and Mia Scharpie chatted with JewishBoston.com about the birth of Black Trumpet and their focus on introducing diners to "regional cuisines that are rarely seen in kosher meals." And it's not just the food that's on their minds; the space also plays an important role. "Most pop-ups don't have a design partner, but we really believe that a meal is more than food — the space and setup set a tone that can make a really amazing experience."
This venture has no connection to Black Trumpet Bistro, a restaurant nearby in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
