Last month, Jeremy Fox and his Old Soul project moved into Square One Dining for a short series of dinners. A great time was had by all (morcilla latkes!) — so great, in fact, that Fox initially planned to return to Square One this month for more of the same. Alas, those plans have been scrapped. As this is not a pop-up, the organizers behind Old Soul, explained in a press release: “A last-minute opportunity came up which [Fox] felt the need to pursue.” Which we'll likely hear about soon enough; meanwhile, all is not lost. The show will go on. Just with different leads.
Instead of Fox, different chefs will take up weeklong residencies at Square One, starting with James Trees (formerly of the Michael Mina Group and Fig) on January 17 and followed by Adam Gertler, The Churchill's Bruce Kalman, Tyler Wells (taking some time off from his coffee duties at Handsome Coffee Roasters) and C.J. Jacobson. More chefs and dinners to come.
Dinners will be held Thursdays through Sundays and consist of a set five-course menu for $50, with vegetarian options available. See the upcoming menus and make reservations on this is not a pop-up's website here.
