You've got a few days to practice your pucker before it's time to get slurping at Cask & Larder's one-night-only Ramen Pop-Up Dinner on Monday, Aug. 1, from 9 to 11 p.m.

This will be the first specialty dinner hosted by Cask & Larder's new chef de cuisine, Scott Pizzo, who will join forces with his friend Austin Boyd, executive chef at Seito Sushi Baldwin Park. In 2015, C&L offered their first "Ramen After Dark" night from 10 to midnight; this event is a slightly different affair (check that menu!!) but we're happy to see a return to the soup. 

Boyd, who won the TastyChomps-sponsored Ramen Rumble in March with his signature tonkotsu ramen, will collaborate with Pizzo on a menu of "several varieties of the traditional Japanese soup with a Southern Cask & Larder twist." The menu, as of Thursday morning, includes:

Chef Austin Boyd:
  • Tonkotsu ramen
  • Shoyu ramen
Chef Scott Pizzo:
  • Peking duck, Peking poussin and Peking goat stations
  • Pig heads with spoonbread steamed buns
  • Nigiri pops
  • Big beef short ribs
  • Whole fish
  • Soup dumplings (squee!)
Dessert by Cask & Larder:
  • Ice cream sandwiches (brown sugar-miso semifreddo, peanut butter cookie, pretzel crumble, chocolate-cherry jam)
