Two Years of Temporis: A Cocktail Party
To mark the second anniversary of Temporis, Executive Chef Donald Young and Proprietor Sam Plotnick will transform the 20-seat dining room of their Michelin-starred restaurant into a cocktail party for one night—the first opportunity for guests to experience Young’s progressive, award-winning cuisine on such an unfettered scale with an open bar of Sommelier Don Coen's wine pairings and cocktails.
Guests will enjoy a tasting of Temporis, past and present, in a sit-where-you-like setting. Passed canapes will riff on now-signature courses, such as A5 Miyazaki Wagyu with caramelized apple puree, Mangalica ham-wrapped donuts with dill and yogurt and escargot with compressed apple and brioche hollandaise. Altogether new small bites will include salmon with caviar and fermented matsutake crème fraîche.
Similarly, beverages to be served from the open bar are a greatest-hits gastronomic assortment that includes two mainstays of the wine pairing, 2017 Eladio Piñeiro Rias Baixas, a Spanish albariño, and NV Champagne Thienot Champagne Brut. Featured cocktails include a pair of classics—the Old Fashioned and the Manhattan—as well as the Chicago Franken Spritz, the restaurant’s most popular cocktail created around the much-maligned and beloved Chicago spirit, Malort.
Tickets for the party are $100 per person. Temporis will donate half of the proceeds from the evening to the nonprofit Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center, which serves as the front-line responder in Chicago to reports of child sexual abuse.
