After last month’s successful Valentine’s Day dessert reception, Lilify is taking the plunge into pop-up dinners. This Sunday, March 10, the shop will be converted into a dining room for an intimate dinner experience.
Chef Amber Kirpes from Sierra Mar at Post Ranch Inn will be preparing dinner for the evening, with wines provided by Pierce Ranch Vineyards. Dinner is served at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $78 per person and available at Lilify’s shop on Lighthouse Avenue.
I’m certainly supportive of the pop-up dinner trend, having attended a few myself, like Füd’s coffee-inspired dinner at East Village Coffee Lounge, a seafood-centric dinner highlighting Local Catch Monterey Bay at La Balena and of course the dessert dinner at The Independent. These unconventional dinners present a great opportunity to meet local foodies and chat with the chefs directly. I hope to see more chefs following in Lilify’s footsteps and hosting special dinners around town.
Lilify is at 281 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey. 831-207-1380. www.lilify.com.
