Former Sloppi Jo’s truck owner Jolene Mannina recently announced that she is launching a pop up dinner series called ChowDownTown to road test the farm-to-table gastropub-inspired dishes she and her chef/partner Josh Clark will eventually serve in their brick-and-mortar downtown venture (as soon as they find the right space).
Plans for the restaurant are still on, though the first pop-up dinner, which was slated for Feb. 15 in the gallery space next to Lady Silvia bar in the Soho Lofts building, was postponed. The five-course dinner has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. March 18 at Le Thai. It’s BYOB, so bring your favorite beer or wine—or both.
There are just 40 seats available for this event and I’ve already snagged two so email Jolene@SloppiJos.com to secure reservations for the remainder.
