Pioneer Works Supper Club

On March 15th, Vivian Chui, Curatorial Assistant at Pioneer Works brought Manal Kahi, CEO of Eat Offbeat into our studio for an informative discussion about how both organizations hope to help refugees in New York City and across the world. 

Eat Offbeat serves meals conceived and prepared by refugees who now call New York City home.Their menus are hand-prepared by their chefs, who marry centuries-old culinary traditions with their personal touch as newly trained professional chefs. In a single meal, you can enjoy dishes from four or five different countries and regions that, even in New York City, are off-the-beaten path recipes new to most. The meals are layered with generous flavors developed with a judicious hand and, by nature, are very accommodating to a wide variety of dietary needs.

Pioneer Works and Eat Offbeat are teaming up for their March Supper Club on Tuesday the 21st for the first in the series this year. Eat Offbeat, a culinary project comprised of refugees resettled in New York. was founded by siblings Manal and Wissam Kahi in 2015, and is advised by Chief Culinary Officer Juan Suarez de Lezo, an alumnus of esteemed Michelin-starred restaurants Per Se, El Bulli and Mugaritz. 

A percentage of ticket sales from this evening will go towards supporting Eat Offbeat’s mission as they continue to empower and employ refugees from around the world to deliver home-style, authentic meals. The seated dinner adjacent to WORK by E.S.P. TV, directed by Victoria Keddie and Scott Kiernan, will provide a unique opportunity to take in the artists’ first institutional solo exhibition in the United States. The Supper Club will coincide with WORK’s final week on view.
