More about Off the Record Test Kitchen:

Executive Chef Ross Henke of Logan Square’s mezcal-focused Mexican restaurant Quiote (Michelin Bib Gourmand 2018 & 2019) is giving his kitchen staff the spotlight with a brand new series of 2019 dinners featuring up and coming talent.

The Off The Record Test Kitchen, located in Quiote’s upstairs private dining space, is an innovative measure to give these “off the record” team members who work behind the scenes each day a chance to get hands-on experience creating their own tasting menus for the public. Guests for these exclusive monthly dinners will have the opportunity to taste never-before-seen creations and new interpretations of classic dishes from Mexico, Puerto Rico and beyond through the utilization of global cooking techniques, fermentation and more.
