Chez Le Commis is back, and this time the supper club from part-time chef Tom Madrecki is heading to the Dolcezza factory near Union Market. The June 29 dinner will include six courses and unlimited biodynamic wine for $135. Rare bottles will be available to purchase as well. Tickets are available here.
Madrecki, who has apprenticed at Noma in Copenhagen and Le Chateaubriand in Paris, previously hosted his “underground” dinners out of his one-bedroom apartment in Clarendon, where he would often sell out seats in seconds. He’s since moved into the District, but plans to do more dinners at other venues, rather than his own apartment (although there may occasionally be some of those too), in order to accommodate more guests.
As for Vin De Chez, Madrecki’s wine bar pop-up at The Lot at Union Kitchen, he says it’s basically done. Since the Lot is being forced to relocate because of new development, Madrecki says there isn’t a good outdoor space with a free liquor license. Instead, he says his new iteration of pop-up events will fall somewhere between Chez Le Commis and Vin De Chez. Stay tuned for more dates.
