The folks at Red Sauce Hospitality (Posto Pubblico, Fini’s, Frank’s) start the new year on a tasteful note with three pop-ups that celebrate the diverse cultures of its staff. Taking place at Stone Nullah Tavern, the Melting Pot dinner series kicks off with a Nepalese meal on from January 9-11, featuring four family-style dishes, including chicken syafale pastries and khasi ko ledo bedo – which translates into tender pieces of lamb with gravy, chickpeas, nutrela soya chunks and pink paneer gravy with cumin rice. On Jan 16-18, get ready for a seven-course Filipino-style feast-out with dishes such as pork belly lechon, bone marrow nilaga (cooked for 24 hours, no less) and wagyu beef tapa with quail egg. To round off the series, the Red Sauce team plates up a Pakistani menu from January 23-25 with dishes such as samosa chaat, chicken karahi and spiced lentils with boiled egg. Each of the three dinner menus is priced at $388 per person (minimum two people) and for an extra $188, you can enjoy two hours of free-flow beer, wine and spirits.
Another reason to check out this pop-up series is that it’s one of the last chances to visit Stone Nullah Tavern. At the end of the month, the beloved restaurant and bar will make way for another outpost of Fini’s, the group’s casual eatery doling out NY-style pizzas, homemade pastas (all priced at $88) and Italian-influenced drinks. The space will still be run by Red Sauce – so rest assured the quality will remain the same – but it’s still worth visiting again before the menu and interiors change.
