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