Hey, look. Something new and exciting is happening in Ellensburg!

Pop Up Dinner Ellensburg Final.jpg

Local french fry hero Mario Alfaro Lopez, owner and operator of The Red Pickle, is teaming up with Chef Dan Roe (Canyon River Grill, Seattle Stoneburner, Percy & Co.) to bring Pop-Up Dinners to Ellensburg this Spring!

If you’re not familiar, a pop-up is like a shooting star of a restaurant. It blazes through the night, burning brightly and bringing joy to those who are lucky enough to witness it, but then it’s gone from our lives just as quickly as it appeared. I just rolled my eyes at my own terrible metaphor but it works. It’s basically a temporary restaurant that allows a very limited number of pre-ticketed patrons to experience a chef and restaurateur’s most creative and sometimes experimental efforts in very cool speakeasy-type setting.

I’m told that Mario and Chef Dan are planning a multi-course, fine-dining, prix-fixe menu at a very reasonable price. Plus, I’ll be there. Keep an eye on The Red Pickle’s Facebook and Instagram pages for more information on tickets and dates.

  1. Hi, I was doing a little research and don’t see a connection to Canyon River Grill and Seattle Stoneburner, Percy & CO. On their website or on the net.

    Are they working with the Canyon River Grill, located on the Yakima River in Ellensburg?

    1. Hi, Brian! My information is from Mario of The Red Pickle. I wouldn’t necessarily expect restaurants to publish that information anywhere on the web.
