This pop-up is all á la carte, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Humane Society of Indianapolis. Let me say that important part again in case you missed it:
This pop-up is á la carte.
Also making an appearance is Ben Vaughn, a southern-born chef who has found his calling as host of Food Network’s Health Inspectors. Though he’s not an inspector by training, he’s best known for being a restaurant consultant who has put in his dues in the kitchen.
The other best part of this pop-up? It’s free to get in, so just bring enough money to cover your food and booze—but look over the menu first before you go light at the ATM. Here’s what will be served:
grilled pork belly, rice vermicelli, noun cham, pickled shiitake mushroom; cold smoked sea scallop, cheddar grit cake, apple braised kale, cole slaw; curried goat walking taco, guac, cilantro creme, slaw; country style pork terrine, mustard/honey slaw, sour corn, salted popped corn;deviled egg; mustard seed caviar, duck chicharron, smoked tomato fondue duck confit cakes, sauce gribiche, preserved lemons; baked apple-pecan Baklava, bleu cheese fondant.
We asked Whitmoyer how much cash the average patron should bring with them to cover it all.
"If they want to try everything, probably around 50 plus money for drinks," he said. Of course, if you're feeling just a little snacky, bring a ten for one plate and some extra for a drink. Either way, it all supports a good cause.
So, if you’re feeling charitable on Wednesday, head to The Hi-Fi to support a great local cause in a fun way—without all the ice.
