“Chicago Steakhouse” debuts a series of themed, one-night
pop-ups in Mamie Taylor’s Chinatown dining room
Mamie Taylor’s Chef Jeff Koop is bringing the flavours of the world to Vancouver with an internationally themed pop-up restaurant series. These intimate, ticketed dinners will host 16 curious culinary adventurers at each of two seatings behind the green velvet curtain of the restaurant’s private dining room located at 251 East Georgia St. in Chinatown.
A chance for Jeff to “spread his wings,” the pop-ups in the ongoing series will explore international and regional cuisines in a creative and immersive manner, but with the fun and laid-back atmosphere Mamie Taylor’s is known for.
First up is a tribute to one of the most influential American dining institutions: the Chicago Steakhouse, on Tuesday, April 24, with seatings at 6pm and at 8pm.
Set in the go-go 1980s, guests will enjoy some of the most iconic dishes of the past presented in a very modern way. The menu will reflect the modern apex of Chicago’s chophouse culture: A time when The Windy City elected its first female mayor, followed by its first African American mayor; The Bears’ Super Bowl XX win catapulted them to international fame; and ballooning corporate expense accounts kept steakhouses packed night after night.
