From a press release:

“James Beard finalist and former chef of Big Bear Café Quinten Frye envisioned the perfect family meal with farm-fresh ingredients—bringing people together to enjoy great food, perfect wine and libation pairings and the camaraderie of the dining experience. This vision is realized in his newest project, R & D Supper Club. The supper club will be a pop up at various locations throughout the DMV.

The premiere R & D Supper Club will take place on Sunday, November 8 and Monday, November 9 at 6:30 pm at DGS Delicatessen, 1317 Connecticut Avenue NW in DC’s Dupont Circle neighborhood. The premiere meal will include fresh oysters, sopes, empanadas, stone crab aqua chile, pheasant, cabrito, and dessert, from local farms including Earth and Eats, Reids Orchard, Le Bocage Farms, Trickling Springs, Grassy Meadow Farm, Happy Valley Meat Company, plus matching spirits for a price of $125—all inclusive.

The artistry isn’t just on the plate, it is the plate (and glassware). The meals will be served on custom made plates and glassware by local artisans. Custom made hand-blown glasses by JJ Vanlandingham and ceramics tableware by Ryan McDonnell.

Tickets to R & D Supper Club are available here.”
