The new pop-up restaurant recently alluded to by Seattle Met's Kathryn Robinson is official: Volunteer Park Cafe has announced it's hosting a monthly meal from Rover's kitchen duo Kalen Schramke and David Howe.
Each of the Savage Street Cuisine dinners will focus on street foods from a particular part of the world. The premiere dinner is Monday, October 24. The theme is Southeast Asia and dinner runs $35 (beer and wine is extra). Other upcoming dinners include "the dirty South" (November 14) and Latin America (December 12). Seattle Met says that Schramke and Howe are using dinners as a testing ground for various recipes that might become part of a food truck the duo has in the works. Check out reservation info and other details right over here.
Schramke has worked in Seattle since 2009, while Howe has cooked at the former Lampreia, Lark, and Brasa. He also worked for Volunteer Park Cafe owner Ericka Burke previously, which is how these dinners came about.
This is Burke's second foray into turning the restaurant over to a Monday night pop-up. This summer's A Square Meal dinners were cut short when chef Erik Jackson was hired on over at The Coterie Room.
