CULTUREfix on Clinton Introduces Monthly DINNERfix

Posted on: February 8th, 2012 at 6:18 am by

The little bar that could, did. At the height of the Seventh Precinct crackdown last summer, CULTUREfix was one of the watering holes targeted as a “nuisance” and served a temporary injunction for alleged underage drinking. Cops sent narcs into 9 Clinton Street on three separate occasions. But owner Cole Schaffer wasn’t gonna be pushed around, and quickly counter-punched by lawyering up and meeting the NYPD in court. The city ruled in favor of CULTUREfix (rescinded fines), saying that there was no evidence the bar served drinks to minors other than the auxiliary police.

But all this is so summer 2011. Ever testing new waters, the bar-boutique-gallery is poised to lift the curtains on a new thematic dinner feast called DINNERfix. This monthly “supper club” begins February 28, and will feature a revolving tasting menu created in its miniature kitchen.

Details and menu for DINNERfix are below:

Every month culturefix shuts its doors to the public to produce an inspired dinner party hosting 20 guests at a single table in the art gallery.  Featuring an ever changing themed tasting menu, the bar transforms into a production area for the execution of complex menus created out of its miniature kitchen.

This month’s theme has been produced in collaboration with the gallery’s curatorial team, Recession Art.  A seven course menu with beverage pairings has been designed around the currently exhibited artist, Megan Berk.  Guests will have the chance to dine with the artist while tasting chef Ari Stern (culturefix co-owner) &, sous chef, Mauricio Vayda’s eatable interpretations of Berk’s paintings.

Reservations available here.
