Now that chef Brother Luck is back in town, having run the kitchen at the Craftwood Inn for the last seven months, or so, he's breaking out into one-off dinners through a new company called crEATe719 Kitchen.

"We will be hosting a series of *underground pop up dinners*," Luck writes in an e-mail to the Indy. "My goal is to continue building the local food scene with a theatrical way of dining. I've enjoyed working with various pop up restaurants throughout the country over the last few years and wanted to introduce our hometown foodies to this experience."

The first one kicks-off at an expanded Triple Nickel Tavern on June 23. The $45 Street Eats dinner features eight courses paired with beer cocktails. Entrées include bad-ass options like bone-marrow tater tots, bison corn dogs and curry cotton candy.

"It will be a fun night full of surprises and a chance for me to show off another side of my chef personality," writes Luck. "We only have 30 seats available so our goal is to sell out and build a demand for the next one. I'm already talking with VBar about our 2nd dinner which could be a possible food/martini pairing."
