In anticipation of their upcoming opening in Venice, the folks behind Dudley Market (that’d be Jesse Barber, Conner Mitchell, et al) are staging a handful of cool-sounding pop-up dinners for the locals.
The evening-only events will take place over five nights, inside of a super cool house somewhere deep in Venice (details on the exact location are withheld for ticket-holders only), with only 30 seats available per night. The prepaid pop-ups take place this weekend and next, Friday through Sunday (June 5 through 7), and again next weekend Friday June 11 and Saturday June 12 only. Each begins at 7 p.m.
To snag one of the 30 seats, there’s no email waiting list or anything — just be the first ones to pay for your spot. The $80 tickets go live on the Dudley Market website at 5 p.m. the night before each dinner (so the first Friday dinner tickets go up tomorrow night, etc.); grab one or two and you’re in.
As for the menu, it’s an ocean-focused five-course affair, and comes with a wine pairing for each. Expect simple dishes like gnocchi along with larger format plates like Mediterranean sea bream, paired with a Willamette Valley riesling.
Tickets are likely to go fast, as Barber’s previous ramen pop-up in Beverly Hills did brisk business, and his upcoming Dudley Market is one of the most anticipated openings on that side of town in a while.
