NOW: Copperbox’s Foie Gras Crème Brûlée & Lavish Dinner Party
We’re still giddy over the one-year-old clandestine restaurant and private dinner party that is Copperbox. Every Thursday and Saturday, the hard-to-find spot hosts lavish dinner paryies for 24 people, and touts an undisclosed menu full of foie gras creme brûlée and crème of granny smith apples in ricotta/cilantro mousse. Two champagne flutes into this epicurean performance art and you will be yakking up the chap in front of you as if you were best buds back in grade school. To get access, email Copperbox for an invite to this $125 per person affair and make sure your GPS is working.
Copperbox (3328 North Miami Ave., Wynwood) is open now. For details, check out the listing in BlackBook Guides.
