One of the most exciting restaurants in Henderson closed too soon when David Clawson went out of business in October 2015. Now fans of his refined dishes have a new chance to try his food through the Underground DCR, his new secret supper club with a super hidden location and a menu for $95 per person with an optional $40 wine pairing plus an 18 percent service fee.
First, the particulars. Diners have to sign up for the newsletter to find out when the dinners for up to 10 people on Saturday nights take place. A menu for the dinner is posted, and fans sign up for the night that works for them, plus pay for the dinner. The restaurant reveals the location 48 hours before the dinner.
Two locals’ nights are on the books with a reception that runs from 6 to 7 p.m.
For the March 31 menu, diners choose three dishes to start, including salmon belly with pomelo, Jenga pork ribs with green tea, “stuffed tomato” bay scallops with yuzu aioli, avocado wrapped in ahi sashimi, lamb tartare with apricot tomato chutney, a hamachi shooter with truffle ponzu, ahi won ton crisps, a lamb flatbread with caramelized onions, and bao bun mini slider with wagyu beef.
Then comes Japanese furikake milk bread, followed by Cremini mushroom soup with white miso, another soup with Oregon spring tomatoes and truffle Gouda grilled cheese, salmon belly with grapefruit, a 63 degree egg with dashi and bacon, chevre with beets and avocado, Kennebec potatoes with ham hock, an oak-grilled artichoke, and marrow bones with orange bacon marmalade and grilled brioche.
Each course features a wine or beer pairing, but keep in mind, the menu changes every Saturday,
So far, reservations are available for Saturday, March 24, March 31, and April 7, with additional openings in May and June.
Note that none of the dinners take place at the former home of David Clawson Restaurant. New Day Cafe plans to take over that space in Anthem.
