New dining service Clubvivre offers both themed private catering packages as well as bi-monthly public pop-up dinners.
The business is a venture by married couple Maria Kuvshinova and Andries De Vos, who were previously management consultants. Kuvshinova says, “We like hosting dinners at our place, but there are limitations to my cooking skills. Also, we were spending more and more on dining out but were not leaving satisfied. We realized the coolest meals were the ones we had at friends’ homes and just wanted to make entertaining at home less troublesome.”
They offer themed private dining packages such as a Balinese roasted suckling pig feast ($285), an eight-course Renaissance feast ($340) or an exotic wild game meal featuring South African bush meats like crocodile, antelope and ostrich.
The company also hosts public pop-up dining evenings. They catered underground pop-up Alice in Asylum and upcoming events include a four-course 1920s Prohibition-style Beefsteak Party (April 13; $160).
