Dos-Lime: a special pop up event with Jason Quinn & Hop Phan

On September 19, 2011, Hop Phan from Dos Chinos and Jason Quinn from the Lime Truck joined forces to have a special “pop up” restaurant at the Shark Club.  There were 2 seatings (6:00 pm and 9:00 pm) and each seating was limited to 100 people. The food was served “family style” and there were 6 courses for $50.  Diners had the option of pairing their dinner with special cocktails for an additional cost.

Apologies for some of the photos.  The club was very dark, and the lighting was not the best for taking pictures of food (or people).

Congratulations, Hop and Jason.  Every item was well thought out, and the food and event was perfectly executed.
