Dished: Sensorium’s Performance Food

The Feast/Rachel Tepper
  • The much-hyped pop-up dinner theater Sensorium from chef Byron Brown opens at the Yards Park. We gave you a look at the offerings a few weeks back, and now here's the field dispatch from our preview over the weekend.  Picture a dinner party thrown by the Mad Hatter -- elastic performers contort their bodies and voices in ways both beautiful and odd. However, some kinks still needed to be ironed out during previews: The timing of the food was an issue. Dishes are to be accompanied by performance vignettes, but this weekend, were cold by the time the command was given to eat. The food's presentation, however, is pure whimsy. Read more at The Feast.
  • Ah, brisket. That fatty cut of beef is one of our favorites, and many different cultures feel the same way. When braised, it's a traditional Passover dish in Jewish culture, but when rubbed with spices and barbecued it's a Southern delicacy. Asian cultures offer even more types of preparations. In anticipation of Passover, we've compiled a list of our fave local briskets.
  • Screwtop Winebar (1025 N. Fillmore St., Arlington) is offering $5 off wine flights until 7 p.m. Thursday night. Find more deals at The Feast.
