Another week, another restaurant takeover. These takeovers, pop-ups and collaborations are getting to be a regular thing. We love them.
This time, the chef on the road is David Alima, co-owner and "master creamer" at The Charmery, Hampden's home of hand-crafted ice-cream. Alima will be doing the guest-cheffing thing at Shoo-Fly Diner for a special Sundaes takeover tonight.
Alima is partnering with Opie Crooks, Shoo-Fly's chef-de-cuisine, to create an ice-cream tasting menu, pairing up some of Shoo-Fly's favorite dishes with original ice cream creations from The Charmery.
Think chicken and waffles. Start with Shoo-Fly's fried chicken and the Charmery's Belgian-style waffles, add a scoop of “Honey and Snake Oil” ice cream and top it off with fried chicken skin crumbles.
The Sundaes on Monday takeover will also include some special boozy shakes and, for the kids, a make-your-own sundae bar at the diner counter.
