A Dim Sum Cart-Style Pop-Up Dinner with Chef Joji Sumi

In celebration of Mezze Bistro’s 20th Anniversary this year, we welcome back former chef Joji Sumi from San Francisco to cook up a Dim Sum cart-style dinner on Wednesday, May 18th. Joji has been presenting ‘Through the Kitchen Window‘ pop-up dinners on the West Coast and will be joined by a crew of excellent guest chefs from all around the Berkshires. The kitchen team will include Nudel chef Bjorn Somlo, former Allium chef Dan Hardy (current chef at The Clark), Mezze chef Nick Moulton and former Mezze sous chef Vi Huu Wood (now cheesemaker and farmer at Berle Farm). And, Caitlin Harrison, featured wine fairy of the evening, will be pushing the dim sum carts with us!
