The next installation at Cycle sounds pretty damn cool.
Former software tech guy, Mark Susan, ditched all that nonsense, picked up a camera and is now enjoying life as a freelance photographer. One fine day back in March at a little food festival called Devour, Susan noticed the Cycle tent and was hit with the urge to cook.
Susan submitted his menu, got accepted and then waited to find out when his turn would come to be the next guest chef at the trendy Phoenix pop up.
That time is now.
Susan has traveled the world shooting photography for magazines, designers, musicians, restaurants, you name it. Aside from whipping up a tempting three-course meal, the guest chef will also have 8 x10's of his work display through out the space for your viewing pleasure. If you like what you see, pull the print off the line and let your server know how many you'll be taking with you. Each print is only five bucks. You can't beat that.
Let's not forget about the food. Susan's three-course meal starts with an amuse bouche of chilled mint melon soup. Next, try his rendition of an egg roll that he calls a "seoul roll," seasoned pork, glass noodles, bok choy and shitake mushrooms served with homemade sweet & sour. For the main course -- five-hour braised pork shoulder. Finish off your experience with two fruit sorbets -- strawberry and basil-lime.
"Tasteful Experience" will run this Friday and Saturday night, July 1st & 2nd. Reservations are limited to 75 seats per night. $20 ++ per person. Click here to RSVP.
