The uptown bar has announced that they have teamed with Chef Christian John Sia, formerly of Moto – a highly acclaimed molecular gastronomy restaurant in Chicago known for creating “high-tech” dishes using things like carbonated fruit, edible paper, lasers (!), and freezing food using liquid nitrogen – for a summer pop-up series.

Bootlegger Tiki will host a food pairing beginning on June 28th and then continuing every last Wednesday of the month. Guests who pony up $75 will get a unique four course food and cocktail offering. There will also be ala carte courses available for $25.

“I am very excited to be able to offer this fun pop-up the the guests at Bootlegger,” said Chad Austin, Head Bartender & Beverage Director at Bootlegger Tiki.  “To be able to push the limits of what guests expect out of a cocktail, people have been pairing wine with gourmet meals for years but cocktails have always been a before or after dinner experience.”
