Underground Dining Scene

I add places as I hear about them. I do try to keep the listings up to date – if you know about a place that’s opened, closed, moved, changed its website, let me know (at the email link above). I go through the listings every few months and try to contact those that appear to be defunct, but it’d be great to keep it more up to date. Please understand I have nothing directly to do with any of the other places besides my own – I can’t make reservations for you, I don’t know the details of the dinners, the prices, or anything else. You’ll have to contact the one(s) you want to reach all on your own. Nor am I endorsing them, I haven’t been to the vast majority of them.

Note: please don’t ask to be listed if you’re not really an underground supperclub – this isn’t a place for listing your hot, trendy nightclub, restaurant, your social club, meet-up group, members only event, or what-have-you. This is a resource for people who cook and offer dinners in their homes, galleries, offices, or other private spaces and the people who like to dine with them – the so called “guerilla” or “anti-” restaurants. And these are simply linked listings – I have enough work to do on my own dining club – if you have photos, testimonials, reviews, etc., to post, post them at the site you’ve had me link to.

A similar concept is the “pop-up restaurant” – often open just for a single or short-term event, perhaps held at an art space or warehouse or exhibition hall, though sometimes in a private home; or a visiting chef (or local chef without his or her own restaurant) taking over the kitchen and dining room of another existing restaurant on their closed night(s). What tends to be different about these is that they’re generally operating out of licensed facilities – either taking over the kitchen of a regular restaurant on an off-night, or at fairs and events that have things like single day licensing for food service. It ain’t underground, it ain’t guerilla, which isn’t “wrong” it’s just not what this list is about. Plenty of hits on internet searches for the term, and, although some of those may creep into the list, there’s just too many of them for me to keep track of and it’s not my intention to do so.

For those who aren’t quite sure what the “scene” is all about – here’s a link to our information page: Frequently Asked Questions/Preguntas Frecuentes and a link to an article I wrote on the topic for the Guardian UK.

I found this blog that’s a fascinating reversal on the experience that in-home restaurants provide, a young woman in the Netherlands who gets herself invited to people’s homes for a traditional dinner of their culture (she focuses on finding someone from a different ethnic background for each meal), along with conversation about the food culture, recipes, and backgrounds of those cuisines.

Another similar concept, thought more of a pop-up, is the Dinner en Blanc series that’s hosted around the world.
