The MINA Group debuts their brand new MINA Test Kitchen with Middle’terranea, a collaboration between Chef Michael Mina and RN74 Executive Chef Adam Sobel. An exploration of the chefs’ roots, Middle’terranea will showcase a modern refresh of traditional dishes of the Middle East and Mediterranean regions, where Mina and Sobel grew up, respectively.
“The test kitchen concept is very exciting because it provides us with a unique opportunity to push us outside of our comfort zone,” said Sobel. “For example, Michael will get to showcase the food he grew up with as a child, and I look forward to being creative with my Jewish roots. We hope the community and neighborhood will embrace the stories we tell through our food, as well as our other curiosities and passions that we’ll be drawing from with future pop-ups.”
At Middle’terranea, a multi-course menu by Mina and Sobel will be served family-style, featuring a modern refresh of traditional dishes from the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean regions. Selections include laffa amuse, choice salads, fish in aromatic broth, char grilled or roasted meats, and sweets, among others.
Resy is the exclusive ticketing partner of the MINA Test Kitchen, the group’s first R&D space. An intimate space in Cow Hollow/Marina, Mina and his team will experiment and flex their culinary muscles here. Dishes born and nurtured here may eventually make their way onto menus around the country.
Middle’terranea begins on Thursday, July 23, and will be hosted Wednesday through Saturday nights. Tickets are $45 per person, exclusive of tax, gratuity and beverages. The beverage pairing is $30 per person. Click here to purchase tickets or visit www.minatestkitchen.com.
