Guest Chef's at Upton 43's Chef Table

Opening a brand new restaurant for dinner and brunch wasn't enough for chef Erick Harcey. (All the while, also running his other restaurant, Victory 44.) Harcey also launched a special chef's table dining experience inside the new Linden Hills spot. Now, he's stretching his creativity again by inviting some chef friends to come cook with him at those tables. First up, Michelle Gayer, the James Beard Award nominated owner of The Salty Tart will stop by the kitchen on March 18 to throw down on some tasty dishes for just a few lucky guests. Then on March 25, Doug Flicker of Piccolo and Sandcastle (and the above event - the guy is everywhere) will stop by to dazzle guests with his brand of culinary magic tricks.
