GOURMET "UNDERGROUND" DINING:
BEHIND THE SCENES
Underground dining events are sweeping the nation.
Gourmet diners get on a "member list",
wait for an email invitation,
and do their best to reply quickly
(first come, first served)
to grab one of 24 seats at a 9-course gourmet meal.
And they're not even told "where" the event will be held,
not until 24-hours before the gourmet experience.
This event, held at the Piper Palm House,
at Tower Grove Park in St. Louis,
"sold out in 9 minutes."
It takes almost as many chefs, sous chefs,
assistants and servers in the back of the house
to prepare this memorable event.
