Chef/co-owner Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen and other restaurants plans to partner with various restaurant colleagues in joint dinners about once a month, it was announced today. The kickoff is “Tokifact” at Artifact Coffee with chef/owner Erik Bruner-Yang of the popular Toki Underground in D.C. (pictured with Spike).
Two dinners remain in the series, which features spelt ramen. They are being held tonight and Saturday, starting at 6:30 p.m. and serving until the ramen is gone. It’s first come, first serve, and from what we are hearing, lines form early to get into the Clipper Mill restaurant.
Dumplings, desserts, and cocktails are also on the menu, all priced a la carte.
Future dinners will seek to put a local interpretation on different cuisines. We can't wait to see who Spike partners with next.
In the meantime, Artifact already has other events coming up: “Bowl & a Beer” on January 22 and One Pot Dinners with a Beer for $8 on January 29.
