I am intrigued with underground supper clubs, secret locations, by invitation only events that are for foodies “in the know”. Hard core gourmands in New York and Boston have been doing this for some time and finally Denver has joined the party. Hush, started by Phil Armstrong and his partner Chance Humphrey feature the most passionate rising stars of the Colorado culinary scene cooking dinner in different locations in Denver and Boulder. From the rooftop of the Art Museum residences to an urban winery the locale and chefs change from event to event.
“It’ll be a forum,” Armstrong explained, “where rising chefs have a chance to develop their cuisine. You know, when you’re staging or working for a chef, it’s all about doing what the chef wants. Cooking his cuisine. A lot of these guys don’t even know what their cuisine would be.”
Kate Horton, James Mazzio, Ian Kleinman and the chefs from Sweet Basil in Vail have all cooked for HUSH. This Sunday it’s Chef Jeff Osaka’s turn. Hailing from Twelve Restaurant, Chef Osaka is known for his modern American farm to table cuisine. Will he do the same thing at this HUSH dinner or will he get back to his Asian roots? I’ll be there to find out.
While HUSH is semi secret you still need an invitation to attend. See what all the fuss is about. Click here to learn more.
