Chef Leon is back with his own pop-up event space at 188 Liberty Street called Lodger. Brunch is served on Sunday’s, 10am-1pm and is just $12.50 a person. You are served a variety of surprise dishes – whatever is being cooked that day. Leon also is passionate about books. He hosts Book & Bread dinners for $75 a person Sunday evenings. There, you will bind a book using old techniques. The pop-up space is available for private dinners where you can design a menu that fits your price point and palate.
Lodger was awarded an Awesome Foundation grant. They will be working with Newburgh high school students to learn everything about cooking – farm to table. They will also help build a clay oven in the patio and have an opportunity to host their own night at Lodger.
Dining here is truly an experience, even more so when all of a sudden you are in a deep conversation with everyone around the table like you are old friends. Be sure to visit the website or Instagram page for more details. Make reservations if you want to be sure you are seated.
