The weekend is over. Long live the weekend.
You need something to pick up your spirits. And considering we can’t get you a better job, a nicer apartment, or a fat sack of cash (and if we could, we’d have first dibs anyway) instead we can break the news to you that Jeremy Kean and Philip Kruta, the beloved local maestros behind the Whisk series of pop up supper clubs have just pulled together their next event.
It’s called “WHISKy – Ramen – Blues!” and will feature a la carte and tasting-menu options for hand-pulled craft ramen presented in locally-made Ogusky ceramics, Japanese whiskey and sake, and a live blues band. This is the third pop up in the team’s new home now that they’ve permanently taken over the Fazenda Cafe kitchen in Jamaica Plain, right across from the Forest Hills MBTA station at 3710 Washington Street.
Diners are invited to show up any time between 6pm-11pm, and the menu will be presented a la carte or as a full tasting menu.
Kean says that the piece-by-piece build out of the space is moving forward, and as they continue to build out the restaurant these hosting the pop-ups in their new permanent home is a way to invite locals in to share the ride.
The sample menu is below and the team says it’s subject to change based on what is available and what they find leading just up until they start cooking. Walk-ins are welcomed, but reservations can be made by calling or texting 617-756-7572.
