The Sensorium, DC's latest in pop-ups, kicked off last night from its funky geodesic dome. The project from Artisa Kitchen's Bryon Brown aims to marry culinary creativity with theatrical vignettes from local performance artists, all housed beneath a custom-built 36-foot dome perched on the Capitol Hill Waterfront near Nationals Park.
The meal kicks off with an amuse bouche of kirroyale pearls, then moves through a playful series that includes "Cloud 9" salmon salad, chair pork belly, chicken roulade with black trumpet mushrooms and braised chestnuts, and a rainbow cauliflower trio. Performances/meals will be offered Tuesday through Sunday nights, with two seatings each night, for the next several week. Tickets are available online for shows running through May 1, with only five of the 33 available seatings sold out at this point. The Sensorium will run you $150 for the all-inclusive 12 courses and wine pairings.
