To recap the drill…

Harry’s chef pop-up dinners occur about once a month, each time with a new chef in Harry’s kitchen doing a special menu from their cookbook, their restaurant, or sometimes something different. We close to regular business for these intimate evenings. They are relaxed and convivial, with a family-style meal unfolding at communal tables. Seating is first come first served. Menu is subject to change and doors open at 7:00 p.m. sharp.  Making new friends is encouraged and easy when you’ve got a welcome cocktail in hand with hors d’oeuvre, four courses, free-flowing wines by The Genuine Hospitality Group sommelier and Wine Director Eric Larkee and our tap beers including Michael’s Genuine Home Brew at your disposal. Go home with a special gift too, Publican Quality Meats tees!  All that and tax and gratuity are included in the ticket price of $150.

Tickets are exclusively sold online for the pop-up series through, where you’ll find the schedule as it stands for 2013, which is mighty fine so far!

Stagiaire Supper Milton

One last heads up…

Michael’s Genuine Miami chef de cuisine Bradley Herron is getting his ducks in a row for Stagiaire Supper Two this Sunday night, December 16 at 5:00 p.m.  The second in his homespun dinner series raises money to send his cooks away to stage for a few days with a great chef. 30 guests enjoy a bountiful family-style meal at his home for $50 with wine and a cocktail.   Read up on the series and see pictures from the first event here, and numero dos here!
