Austin: Supper Underground

Every month for the past four years 30 lucky Austinites gather for Supper Underground, a clandestine dinner club founded by Hannah Calvert. SUG has about 2,000 people on their mailing list and a week before the dinner each guest is emailed and asked to respond within 24 hours. Using a lottery system 30 folks are chosen and told where to arrive for a cocktail hour followed by a four course meal.
The menus are seasonal and as local as possible and consist of mouthwatering dishes like smoked tomato and crab soup, apple-sage braised pork on polenta, and extra virgin olive oil pound cake with macerated strawberries. Hungry yet?
