The chefs behind The Stove now have a pop-up kitchen that takes over the space on Fridays and Saturdays. Antonio Nunez and Scott Commings, who won season 12 of Hell’s Kitchen, roll out the weekend dining experience using dishes they create while testing new flavors that they can incorporate into their consulting projects at Established Culinary Management in cities including Los Angeles and San Diego.
So far, the Test Kitchen features shareable plates, a boutique wine bar with an emphasis on hard-to-find wines, and a changing seasonal menus each month.
Dishes include a garlic hummus with cucumbers and naan; fried cauliflower with a charred tomatillo chimichurri, and lemon aioli; skirt steak with achiote sauce, Hollandaise, poblano potato hash brown, and roasted veggies; and grilled octopus with arugula, roasted potatoes, chorizo, and garlic chili aioli.
The Test Kitchen inside The Stove is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 5:30 to 10 p.m. the space also hosts a happy hour each night from 5:30 to 7 p.m. with wines by the glass along with beer and food specials.
