FRIENDSGIVING: Second Annual Komeeda Pop-Up


A Thanksgiving for Friends, from Friends.

If you didn't make it to Dinner Under the Bridges, here's another Komeeda pop-up for ya!

Last year, Komeeda collaborated for a Friendsgiving pop-up dinner at one of our partnering restaurants. We hosted our "kommunity" members for a multi-course Spanish style tapas meal in the "beer-house".

This year we're doing it bigger, better and in Brooklyn! We have partnered up with two of Komeeda's favorite chefs, Chef Showdown #2 & #3 champions, Chefs Florvil Valdez and Paula Ignacio . If you've been to our last two showdowns, you've had a couple of their to-die-for culinary creations, and now they will be teaming up and putting together an innovative multi-course Friendsgiving feast for the kommunity.
