Launched in 2012, Dinner Lab is a national social dining experiment that unites undiscovered chefs with adventurous diners who are looking for something different from the traditional restaurant experience. The concept features up and coming culinary talent from the local community (as well as skilled chefs from other parts of the country) and gives them a platform to be head chef for the evening while gaining valuable feedback from our members. We donâ€™t dictate what our chefs cook, but instead ask them to tell a story through their menu â€“ recipes that speak to their background or heritage, ingredients theyâ€™re passionate about, or completely new dishes theyâ€™ve been experimenting with on days away from the restaurant.
This edition dinner theme is Boteco: Night Food in Modern Brazil with Chef Vitor Lara. In Rio, a night out is not complete until you stop at a boteco, a staple gastro-bar to Rio natives. This menu expands on boteco cuisine and also offers a look at the under-represented culinary scene of modern Brazil. Membership fee is $175. #DinnerLab @DinnerLab
