Guerrilla restaurants to open Sept. 4-13
Talisker Executive Chef Gavin Baker will open one of the nation’s first guerrilla
restaurants, Mist, in Park City for ten nights in September 2008. Open September 4-13, at the Rikka Studio at Kimball Junction, each intimate night will host only 20 attendees. The dinner will showcase Baker’s flair for multi-courses in a 10-course meal with wine pairings. Tickets are $250 each. Guerrilla restaurants, all the rage in the UK, are temporary restaurants usually housed in makeshift structures for a deliberately limited timeline. Top chefs are attracted to this type of establishment because it allows them to try out their newest creations to a restricted audience who find out mostly by word of mouth. To reserve tickets to Mist, please contact Jane Sahagian, at Rikka Studio at 435.649.6445 or http://www.guerrillafoodnetwork.com.
