'Gathered Here'

Intimate groups of diners dotted the rustic-industrial space of 18 Ballater Avenue, the location for Kayter Pop-Up Gourmet Kitchen, helmed by Tooksie Kay Catering chef/caterer Alexa Von Strolley, last Friday. The Let's Gather farm-to-table tasting menu was presented by out-of-town friends and collaborators Christina Simonitsch of Simo's Bread & Catering, and Inemari Rabie of Miel+Meel in from Nice, France. There was pork, fish, mushrooms, almonds, quinoa, fruit, and root vegetables — universal market staples filtered through the deft hands of our 'dynamic duo'. With the capital-city edition successfully under their belt it was back to the Second City, the very next evening, to reproduce the experience at Simonitsch's family home. From the borrowed scullery of Kayter to the mood-lit tabletops, Thursday Food accounts for a meal where artistry was a discernable hallmark.
