The Gypsy Gourmet: Underground Dining comes to Cleveland

Posted By on Thu, Apr 26, 2007 at 5:30 PM

Drawing inspiration from everything from Cuba’s secret supper clubs to celeb chef Anthony Bourdain, underground dining is hot in spots like San Fran, New York, and Chicago. Now, thanks to a cadre of chefs, the trend has come to Cleveland with the arrival of The Gypsy Gourmet. Like most of its kin, the Gypsy celebrates food, friendship and culinary creativity by bringing together like-minded strangers to break bread in private dining rooms, backyards, and empty work spaces. Not only does it give hardcore foodies an exclusive alternative to restaurants, but it’s a great way for chefs to flex their creative muscle, cooking up cutting-edge fare they could never sell to a wider audience. We can’t go into to detail – it’s a secret, all right? – but if we let it slip that the Gypsy held its inaugural dinner last week, probably no one will mind. To see some mouthwatering pics of the offerings (and get a hint of who’s involved) click here. -- Elaine T. Cicora
