Friday, February 17, 7pm: Restaurant Sneak Peek: An Evening with Chris and Caitlin Rorer of KEEN

Price $160.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

Boy meets girl. It’s a familiar tale, but when they meet in culinary school, the results are all the more delicious. Once classmates at The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College, Chris and Caitlin Rorer are now hard at work preparing for  the opening of KEEN, which will occupy the former Astral Plane space at 17th and Lombard. In collaboration with Randy Hoppmann, a Le Bec-Fin alum who taught at Front of House at The Restaurant School, the Rorers’ concept is simple – reasonably priced American food and drink, hospitality-forward, and, given the neighborhood demographic, family-friendly. An opening date has not been made public, but you can be among the first to preview KEEN’s menu when Chris and Caitlin make their COOK debut, preparing Roasted Carrot and Garlic Hummus served with toasted bread and pickled carrots; Pan Seared Scallops with jasmine rice, sriracha butter sauce and pancetta chips; Red Wine Braised Short Ribs with mashed sweet potatoes and bacon brussels sprouts; and Nutella Cheesecake with whipped cream topping.
