Dec 6 all-day

Coming to DTLA’s Hudson Lofts December 6 – 8. It is a celebration of LA’s culinary scene with the
first-ever 100 Course Meal. The trademarks of the 100 Course Meal will be an expansive, seemingly never-ending
table and the highly choreographed delivery of 100 artfully presented dishes. Each of the 100 guests per seating will be able to enjoy ten dishes at the table in rapid succession. Just imagine an intimate 100 person dinner party. In addition to the seated experience, guests will be given the opportunity to further interact within the 10,000-square-foot space via multiple activations including the culinary lab, showcasing the future of food and beverage. The lab will be complete with cutting-edge demos highlighting everything from a drone bartender and food laser to low atmospheric distillation and molecular gastronomy. Additional components include visual 100 dish presentations, including 100 pieces of sushi, tacos, sandwiches, and donuts – all for guests to photograph and consume at their own discretion. Dinner is already sold out all three nights (!) but guests can still snag a coveted ticket Saturday (December 7) or Sunday (December 8) for lunch at $100 a pop. Guests can purchase their tickets now! Each ticket includes ten seated courses and access to unlimited beer, wine and cocktails and all the food and fun happening inside the venue. 100 Course Meal is the brainchild of Michael Cirino who’s been bringing his highly sought-after A Razor/A Shiny Knife dining experiences to sold-out crowds around the world from New York City to Panama for more than 15 years. Previously pop-ups have included a coursed out dinner on NYC’s Subway. Cirino has teamed up with Thrillist and sought out some of LA’s top culinary talent to take part including Bub & Grandma’s Bread, Coolhaus, Homestate, Konbi, Jewel, Ms. Chi, SLAB, and The h.wood group.
