What exactly does it look like when chef Richard Blais is tasked with dreaming up a meal inspired by the work of artist Greg Ito?

We can’t tell you just yet. We can, however, offer a sneak peek into Blais’s menu and expound upon how each dish takes its cues from Ito’s installation Hallowed Ground. Read on for a glimpse into ARTXFOOD’s fantastical menu (there’s only 8 days until you can discover it for yourself) and reserve your very own seat at the table by clicking here.

ARTXFOOD MENU

🍒LIFE’S A BOWL🍒

The meal’s signature cocktail, this fruitful concoction will greet guests upon arrival and is inspired by recurring motifs of fruit in Ito’s work.

🕯BONE CANDLE🕯

An homage to the candles and candelabras featured in much of Ito’s paintings, this dish has a moody feeling that’s almost medieval in nature.

🐦BIRD IN HAND🐦

It’s worth more than two in the bush.

🦄UNICORN SOUP🦄

Richard’s own unique, fantastical brand of soup, with mystical undertones and notes of fantasy—a perfect compliment to Ito’s installation.

🦆BLACK SWAN🦆

Inspired by the romantic tension found in much of Ito’s oeuvre, this dish will have dueling flavors and a dark atmosphere. Are you team Capulet or team Montague?

BEST PICNIC EVER!!!

A light and airy dessert taking its cues from summer days spent picnicking, the forest, and—you guessed it—the work of Greg Ito.
