To describe chef Cullen Campbell, owner and chef of the Italian-inspired Crudo, as restless would be an understatement.
Still working on securing a new home for Crudo (rumored to be in Arcadia) since being kicked out of his Scottsdale location in July, Cullen has kept busy with pop-ups at Posh and Cycle in addition to traveling to Los Angeles for his birthday. Now, it seems the culinary pro has secured two months worth of pop-up gigs at Jam, an artisan's boutique and craft space in the historic Charles Miller home in Old Town Scottsdale.
The pop-ups will take place at 7 p.m. every Friday in October and November, starting this Friday, October 7. Cullen tells me the three-course dinners will be BYOB and the menus will be a revolving array of familiar Crudo fare in addition to new dishes he's anxious to serve when his restaurant re-opens.
"The space is small, so we'll have room for about fourteen people a night," Cullen says, "with the majority of seating on the patio."
Translation: make your reservations now. See this Friday's menu and find out how to make reservations after the jump.
1st Course Albacore with salt roasted grapes, pine nuts, lemon, and chive.
2nd Course Butternut squash ravioli with a fried blossom and squash vinaigrette.
3rd Course Short ribs with smoked bone marrow and crispy truffled potatoes.
Menu is subject to change due to availability of the farm.
