So let's start with the origin of the word, speakeasy:
"from speak + easy; socalled from the practice of speaking quietly about such a place in public, orwhen inside it, so as not to alert the police and neighbors. The wordgained wide currency in U.S. during Prohibition (1920-1932). In early 19c.Irish and British dialect, a speak softly shop meant "smuggler's den."
Thankfully, there isn't really a need for speakeasies anymore. That said, there are elements of the speakeasy that we still long for. The need to connect with others who share a common interest. The excitement that comes with knowing a secret. And the desire to have a unique and exclusive experience.
We aim to create a dining experience that effectively brings those elements to the table. Oft-changing locations. Secret passwords. Avant Garde food. Stimulating conversations. New friends.
This is a family business. It is the brainchild of teen food prodigy, Trevor Shankman and his father / local chef, Kyle Shankman. Every supper features a thoughtfully crafted 5-course tasting menu served simultaneously to every diner at one large communal table.
To become part of the experience, email email@example.com with the subject: Keep Me Posted.
When we announce a new supper, our "Keep Me Posted" crew receives an email with the date, time, city, and menu. To attempt a reservation, respond to that email as soon as possible with your desired number of seats. If we can still accommodate, you will get a confirmation email with the address, password, and instructions upon arrival.
We look forward to feeding you.
