Atlanta-based pop-up restaurant Heritage Supper Club has dreams of going brick-and-mortar. The pop-up, which is coming to a loft space with an outdoor patio at 101 Peachtree Street on July 27th, specializes in fine Caribbean and Afro-American cuisine.
Chef Demetrius Brown, who both owns the pop-up and helms the menu, says the idea behind the supper club was to use food to tell the story of his past. “I want to bring Caribbean and African cuisine to the forefront of fine dining,” says Brown, who grew up eating food cooked by his Trinidadian grandmother. “I try to to make each dish as elevated as possible, while staying true to my heritage and the history and integrity of the food.”
The Heritage Supper Club pop-up offers a seven-course tasting menu, with dishes inspired by African, Caribbean, and Asian flavors (Brown grew up eating a lot of Asian dishes, as well). Each course is paired with music from Brown’s childhood, and dishes like cornbread with cultured honey butter, Piri Piri chicken, and Moroccan eggplant have all been featured on the menu.
While the pop-up is focused on a tasting menu, Brown says his brick-and-mortar will be a more casual restaurant. “The goal with the pop-up is to get our name out there and show people what can be done with these ingredients,” says Brown. When he finds a good space to open his brick-and-mortar, he’ll move to a more casual dining model.
