There’s been some speculation on who wrote Tuesday’s intriguing menu for 48 Nights, the temporary restaurant at the site of the planned Sylvan/30 development. If you haven’t heard, most of the city’s best chefs are donating their services to the restaurant on Monday and Tuesday nights. Diners pay $75 for one set menu, typically five courses, which is released about a week ahead. Proceeds go to the Mass Care Task Force.
Here’s one guess for Tuesday’s menu, from Teresa Gubbins, who is playing "guess the chef" every week now.
Thoughtful, but she guessed wrong. We hear it’s Bolsa chef Graham Dodds, who lived for a while in Thailand. So far, many 48 Nights dates have sold out, but there are still tickets available for Dodds’s Thai cuisine. It could be there’s some apprehension regarding his menu’s second course: "deep fried grasshoppers and scorpions, mae ploy".
I’m game. All I need now is seventy-five bucks and a date.
