UnScene feast in the Municipal Auditorium on Fri, June 20, curated by Sarah and Evan Rich, hot chefs from San Francisco
Coming to Shreveport's Municipal Auditorium on Fri, June 20: an UnScene public feast curated by the hottest chefs in San Francisco. They are Sarah and Evan Rich.
Their Gough St bistro has won numerous rave reviews, notes local artist Kathryn Usher. An example: the food-oriented city blog sfist.com calls their restaurant, Rich Table, "One of the 25 best restaurants in the Bay Area - according to statistics." The blog also says they have a Top Ten Bay Area vegetarian dish. Writes Andrew Dalton,"Sarah and Evan Rich's celebrated Hayes Valley spot has been a hot ticket since opening in 2012 and features a number of excellent veggie-forward dishes on their constantly evolving menu. But one item, the airy and earthy porcini doughnuts, are a meatless standout that would have us popping in daily for a bite, if only we could get a reservation. The light, fluffy dough has a hint of sweetness balanced by the rich umami flavor of the dried porcinis."
UnScene has engaged them partly, says Pam Atchison, because Sarah Rich grew up in Shreveport.
Joanne Wen, who posted the above photo, said of her supper, "The Rich Table in SF lived up to the hype. They had some of the most unique dishes I've had in a while: sardine chips with horseradish creme fraiche, porcini donuts which had the texture of Mister Donut, and Douglas Fir levain bread."
The Rich couple will guide a dozen local chefs in creating a Shreveport supper that meets their ambitious standards. The chefs will be surrounded by art installations. UnScene Rich Table: Fri, June 20, 5:30 - 11 pm. See the UnScene Calendar, too.
