Today in super specific eating, three new pop-ups are coming atcha, and Dyne is changing the way you book your seat. The app, which launched a bit ago to much success, has up to now required one to download it in order to book a seat. But now, a beta version allows hungry folks to browse menus and snag a space on the computer as well. Huzzah!
Now, test drive this new feature with three nichey dining options.
Meet & Greet & Eat With the Gluten-Free Girl: Tuesday, 8/18 at 6:30 p.m.
Next Tuesday, General Assembly is hosting a "Fireside Chat" with blogger, cookbook author, and gluten-free girl Shauna Ahern. While the talk is free, Dyne has picked up the prior hour for a meet and greet with Ahern and husband Danny. They'll be whipping up some gluten-free food for a couple dozen gluten-free VIPs beforehand, including pigs in a blanket, mac ‘n cheese, and chocolate chip cookies. The price is $25 plus tax and tip and seats are available on Dyne.
The Art of Yakitori: Thursday, 8/20 at 7 p.m.
Master of ramen, chef Jason Harris, closed the doors to his beloved Bloom in Ballard back in March and has been hosting pop-ups in the space since then. But for one night, he's heading over to the Pike Place Atrium Kitchen for another visit to Japan in a seven-course Yakitori dinner. Expect the menu to be all about chicken (including the dessert, with crispy chicken skin), with highlights like a Chicken Thigh Yakitori Trio, with three sauces highlighting the grilled organic, free-range chicken. The dinner is $40, not including tax and gratuity, and space is incredibly limited. Pick up tickets here.
Celebration of Summer: Saturday, 8/22 at 5:30 p.m.
Calling all vegans! Brave Horse Tavern line cook Shawnna Kenney is shedding her T.Doug coat for one night to prepare a straight-up vegan dinner for around a dozen people at Caffe Torino. You'll start off with a chilled tomato soup amuse-bouche topped with tabasco granita, move into a caponata and carrot hummus with olive oil crackers, and dive into a cauliflower piccata with zucchini noodles for the main course. Dinner finishes up with a fruit tart with coconut whipped cream, and it all can be yours for only $25 plus tax and tip. Tickets here.
