Jose Garces’ Ghost Kitchen “Rustika” is Hosting a 3-Course Pop-up Dinner at Distrito
Last February Chef Joese Garces launched his now popular ghost kitchen Rustika. The Peru-inspired chicken at Rustika is a chicken lover’s dream. At Rustika, their 72-hour long chicken preparation begins with a full day brine that breaks down and tenderizes the protein. Next, the chicken is marinaded in their signature blend of spices, imparting the vibrant flavors that make pollo a la brasa unique. Next, the chicken is dried for one more full day, allowing the skin to achieve its perfectly crispy texture. Finally, it’s roasted on a rotisserie, where the heat helps the chicken achieve maximum juiciness.
Sounds amazing? Well, if you haven’t experienced Rustika’s chicken, well now is your chance. On Wednesday April 27th from 6-9 pm, Rustika will be hosting a 3-course pop-up dinner at Distrito (3945 Chestnut St.). Tickets to this pop-up are $80 per person and tickets can be purchased here.
