Cuisine Contra went quiet for a few months after hosting their first pop-up dinner on Valentine's Day, but this month they're coming back with a second in the series of meals. The Pink Line Project, a local arts group behind the concept, announced today that National Geographic fellow and cookbook author Barton Seaver will follow up Mike Isabella's stint as the pop-up chef at 6 p.m. on June 14.
Seaver's new cookbook, For Cod and Country, is all about sustainable seafood and — surprise! — that's the theme of the pop-up, too. He's in the middle of his book tour, so the chef will prepare a three-course menu using recipes from book, which, by the way, he'll be selling and signing during the cocktail reception. Tickets to this summer whites-attire event are $125 for the general public and $150 if you go VIP. A portion of the proceeds will go to non-profit DC Greenworks. Like the first event, this pop-up's location is top-secret — and won't be released until a day ahead of time — but they do promise an "urban garden" somewhere near Dupont Circle, so get to speculating.
