Diners don't know much about what Neighborhood Restaurant Group is planning for chef Rob Rubba, but those unfamiliar with his cooking will get a sense of it at a pop-up dinner scheduled for later in the month.
"A Prelude by Rob Rubba" is scheduled for Jan. 24 at Dolcezza Factory. The dinner will feature cocktails from Jeff Faile, a family-style dinner with dishes like roasted duck breast with grilled duck sausage and scallion crepes, wines by Brent Kroll and beer from Bluejacket. Dolcezza is handling dessert. Tickets are $75.
Rubba has recently cooked at such restaurants as Azur and the now-shuttered Tallula. When the Arlington restaurant closed, NRG said it would be opening a new place with Rubba at the helm eventually.
