From InsideScoop (

On February 11 and 12, Penrose will host James Henry and Austin Holey of Bones Restaurant ( in Paris; it’s part of a project called the Paris Pop-up ( Bones has been gaining serious buzz in Paris’s 11th arrondissement since opening a year ago. It’s the brainchild of Henry, an Australian chef who is serving pristine, simple food in a stripped-down environment (hence the name).

Here’s how Vogue (,27863) described Bones and its importance in Paris’s dining scene in a very nice profile (,27863):

Henry personifies much of what is good about a movement driven by integrity, simplicity and the democratisation of the dining experience. Bones and its ilk represent a kind of culinary Trojan horse in Paris, junking tired conventions while respecting others, but more broadly helping to evolve Paris from within so that it is the best of the old world and the new.

The Bones dinner at Penrose will be a $125 set menu, which includes wine pairings from Kermit Lynch, Rajat Parr and Evan Lewandowski.

I have a reservation for 4. Since I had to put down a credit card for this event, please put yourself a wait list and I will choose among those with good attendance records.
