The Dining Project Pop-Up@Long Beach ★★★

Amazing 6-Course Tasting Dinner Pop-Up. Great fine dining quality and price point. The A5 Miyazaki Wagyu Beef grilled with Binchotan coal from Japan was amazing. (They purchased for $1,700) Generous portions. Even got to take a loaf of Focaccia bread home. Chef James Caveness is nice and professional along with aspiring Chef Andrew. James started his culinary venture since he was 15. He relates dishes with his personal story. Great service from our server, Shannon. It was a nice surprise to find out that 4 glasses of wine pairing (with refills) were already included.  The Dining Project features aspiring chefs. Knew about this project from Instagram. Intimate 4-6 seats at counter. $145 per person. Limited street parking.
