Silver Lake's Forage pops up at art fair Art Los Angeles Contemporary
Forage, the Silver Lake restaurant known for its focus on the very-locally grown (chef-owner Jason Kim formed a Home Growers Circle of urban/backyard farmers who contribute their produce to the menu), will set up a pop-up cafe at the second annual Art Los Angeles Contemporary.
The international contemporary art fair takes place Jan. 27 to 30 at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, presenting works from dozens of top galleries from around the world. (Obviously, looking at a lot of art makes people hungry.) The Forage pop-up café will be unveiled during opening night and will operate during fair hours to serve exhibitors and visitors.
Kim will offer exclusive meat-friendly or meat-free options specially commissioned for the pop-up cafe, including full meals, light meals, snacks, desserts and handcrafted beverages. Expect "artistic counter service."
