Moveable feasts


The most exciting supper clubs in the city are doing dinner a little differently. By Erin Kuschner


ATOP SCENIC DOWNTOWN lofts and inside private Venice homes, some of L.A.’s most creative chefs are bringing the dining experience out of the restaurant and into the wild. Welcome to the underground world of L.A.’s supper clubs, where communal dining is king and themed meals run rampant. Here are five of the hottest ones right now.


Disco Dining Club Nightlife impresario Courtney Nichols has


been collecting disco paraphernalia for the past 10 years, a haul that now serves as inspiration for the debaucherous Disco Dining Club she throws every few months. The themed gathering, held in various locations across the city, is broken up into a lavish dinner of around 50 guests (chefs change each time) and a larger after-party that includes unlimited oysters and dancing. “We want dinner guests to drink from the bottle, haphazardly make drunken speeches and share food with strangers,” says Nichols. The next event takes place mid-fall, followed by a two-year–anniversary event in January. à Sign up at discodiningclub.com; $170-$200; only after-party $60-$100


Time Out Los Angeles October–December 2016


Foodshop Friends Hyejin Cho and Itay Zach met in


grad school, and despite not having any formal culinary training, they started to throw dinner parties on weekends—a hobby that became so popular, it turned into Foodshop. Dinners can include upwards of 60 people and are held every two or three weeks in a secret location; the events have popped up in both Venice and Echo Park. The menu changes monthly and often draws from Cho and Zach’s backgrounds (Korean and Israeli, respectively)—but keep an eye out for their burger menu, a cult favorite. à Sign up at lafoodshop.com; suggested donation $65-$85


Because the Wind After working as a sous chef and a consultant


in both New York and Japan, Daniel Benhaim arrived in L.A. two years ago and launched his bimonthly supper club, which now takes place in Echo Park. Up to 20 diners congregate around a table in Benhaim’s backyard, delving into dishes that change with each meeting but are always inspired by the chef’s love of nature— courses might include an edible garden
