5-Course Dinner @ Allumette ~ Echo Park

  • Jun 14, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


Join us for a delicious 5-course prix fixe menu dinner on this Saturday at Allumette, Echo Park.  Allumette is highly recommended by one of our very own and true foodie. This is what Steve M (Foodie) Moyer has to say about this place:

“Allumette is closing.  It’s a sad day.  Even with Bon Appetit Top 50, LA Mag 10 Best, and Gold 101 distinctions, an out of the way Echo Park location did them in.  This is a great opportunity to see what Chef Miles Thompson can put on a plate (5x) for way less than it will cost when he next pops up.  Dinners here are prix fix and we will be doing the 5-course (two choices per course) for $60.  It’s a steal.  Wine pairings are available, but the wine list is also reasonable.”

Let's take advantage of this special event for the last time before we say “sayonara” to Allumette. 

 

I've booked a table (of six) for Saturday, 6/14 at 6:15 PM for dinner. 

 

I’ve listed some items from their Dinner Menu: (items subject to change)

• Alaskan Halibut (Field herbs – Burnt Flavors – Blueberries)

• Delta Asparagus (Smoked Tea – Spring Onion – Artichoke)

• Gnochetti (Guinea Hen Ragù – Ubriacone – Crouton)

• Branzino (Shellfish Tapioca – Fried Broccoli – Lemon)

• Lamb Neck (Mushroom Leather - Smoked Avocado – Padrón)

 

Check out the link for more details: http://m.opentable.com/restaurants/allumette/menu/140566

 

This is a 5 course meal, and the cost is $60 excluding tax, tip, an optional wine pairing is an additional $40.  The menu is fixed (i.e. no options) so this is not a family style meal.

  

To prevent any flakers $10 DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED and it'll be refunded back to you after you attended the event.  If you cancel within 48 hours of the event your deposit will go toward the site fee.  A wait list will be available, but if you add yourself to it, please check back since due to the required deposit, the wait list will not automatically move you to the attend list if a space opens.


Parking: There is a public parking lot 2 blocks south of Allumette on the west side of Echo Park Ave. It costs $.50/hour. After 8 pm, it is free.

    What's going on? I got an email that Kris changed my status to not going.

      Sorry about that, M. :(
      I'll explain to you later why you got that message.

    Hi, I am confused. I paid the deposit for the first table. I wanted to bring a guest, but the guest backed out before the second table was set up. So, it is just me, and I sent in my deposit, but I received a confusing note saying that my participation had been cancelled.

      Hi Jean,
      For the first table, you were able to get on, but the list was full before you were able to add a guest. For the second table, I manually added you (another spot for your guess) on to the list and gave you 24 hour to make the deposit in order to secure your seat. I had sent an email informing you of this. I later dropped you off the 2nd table list because I did not receive your payment.
      There are 4 spot left on the 2nd table if you still want to bring your guess. You can remove yourself from the first table and add both you and your guess on to the second table so you both can sit together if you like.
      Hope I clear up the confusion.

    There are 4 spots available for the 2nd table if you want to go.
    The first table starts at 6:15 PM and the second table starts at 6:30 PM.

    Hi Kris,
    How do I pay the $10 deposit?

    Yay I'm so looking forward to this!

    Hi, I'm very excited to let you know that I was able to secure for our group another table of six at Allumette. So we now have two tables of six. The first table starts at 6:15 PM and the second table starts at 6:30 PM. I have added some of you (please check your email) on the waiting list onto the second table. However, you still need to pay the $10 refundable deposit to secure your spot. Please make your payment by Sunday, June 1, 4 PM. If I don't hear back from you then, I'd assume you no longer are interested and will be removed from both lists.
    Thanks everyone!

    I'll see if I can add another table for folks on the waiting list. I need to check with the restaurant first. Please check back later if you're really interested in going.

  • Kris

    Sorry Jean, the list is full and it won't let you add any more.

    Hi, I tried to reserve for 2, but only got asked to pay for 1. What should I do?
