Finding something fun to do these days is hard, but you're in luck cause the LA based culinary mechnics crew - The Gastro Garage have returned to Hollywood for an all new culinary pop-up experience on the rooftop of the W Hollywood - rooftop views, dinner, drinks, music and the entertainment of the ”Gastro Mechanics" makes for a fiery evening that will have you feeling like - life as we knew is back! (only a lot cleaner and safer)
So how do they adhere to the safety measures?
The Gastro Mechanics have been wearing masks long before they became COVID mandatory, it's just part of the job when you cook with blow torches. In addition to these talented chefs wearing their own masks and gloves, guests are also required to wear one upon entry to adhere to COVID safety guidelines.
The event is very intimate; only a limited number of guests are accommodated per seating. Tables are few and parties are separated by at least 6 feet. Upon arrival, you'll take a private elevator to the rooftop
check in, have a photo-op, and then you are escorted to the bar area for cocktails, which includes a welcome toast with a shot of Bullet Bourbon. Afterwards you'll be entertained by a short story about The Gastro Garage and then devour your first delicious course.
For the next stop, you'll be led by your mechanics to private tables with spectacular views of the city, where you'll dine on five more courses cooked tableside along with a signature cocktail.
Naked Salmon Drill Bit (3 oz Clean Salmon Skewer served with sesame oil, Maldon salt and béarnaise foam)
Maple Glazed Carrot Pops (torched carrot pops with EVOO, Maldon salt served with maple gravy foam)
Japanese Marinated Short Rib Drill Bit (3 oz Japanese marinated skewer served with white cheddar foam)
Then, upon completing your savory course items, you will be guided to a private cabana by your mechanic where you'll finish the evening with two dessert courses cooked in front of you as you look out onto the magical city.
Princess Buttercup Gastro Tank (double chocolate foam, torched sweet peanut puree, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Nutter Butter powder)
Fireberry Gastro Tank (sweet cream cheese foam, torched balsamic strawberries, fresh cracked pepper
