Aus­pi­cious Sum­mer­li­cious

NOW Magazine - Hot Summer Guide - - FOOD & DRINK -

Only a year ago, gas­tronomes turned up their noses when Sum­mer­li­cious rolled around. Why would any­one want to eat as­sem­bly-line grub served by rushed-off-their feet-staff when you could get far bet­ter fare in more con­vivial sur­round­ings at the same places for only 10 bucks more at any other time of the year?

Funny what an eco­nomic down­turn can do. Run­ning July 3 to 18, this year’s Sum­mer­li­cious prix fixe food fest – the sev­enth an­nual– has even more par­tic­i­pat­ing restos than ever, in­clud­ing first-time bigticket boîtes like Di­dier Leroy’s epony­mous up­town supper club, TV chef Roger Mook­ing’s Kultura on King, and Susur Lee’s re­branded

Made­line’s . At this rate, it won’t be long be­fore Sum­mer­li­cious runs year-round.

Prix fixe menus at places like Kultura are an eco­nomic boon.
