For a dose of mystery and surprise with modern fine dining, check out the fifth pop-up wine dinner from Pop-Up Tucson at 6 p.m. Friday, January 27.

In true Pop-Up Tucson style, the location will be announced 24 hours prior to the event, while the menu will be announced 48 hours prior to the event.

While previous locations have been outdoor scenic, the latest dinner is hinted to be at one of Tucson’s newest and most flourishing businesses.

The event also offers a Chef’s Table option, where a party of up to 10 can sit privately by the kitchen.

Ingredients are sourced from local vendors such as Cindy’s Garden, Top Knot Farms, and Pivot Produce.

Previous dinners included dishes such as:

  • Roasted rib eye, mustard, pearl onion, parsley root, chard, jus
  • Blackened serrano salmon sashimi, micro greens, saffron rice.
  • Marinated + grilled duck asada, fire roasted corn purée, duck chicharonnes, cilantro.

Pop-Up Tucson chef Riley Chandler started in his grandma’s kitchen making pasta and bread from scratch, then worked his way into the kitchens of Chef Janos Wilder. Most recently, he runs Pop-Up Tucson, provides cooking demonstrations at Williams Sonoma at La Encantada, and assists with events at Carriage House.

Live music will be provided by vocalist Oscar Contreras, who will perform Italian and Spanish songs.
