Dig & Serve, A Speakeasy Underground Supper Club is one of New Mexico’s newest underground food and art movements that provide guests with an experiential dining engagement. Dig & Serves founder, Brandon Gregoire, who has hosted multiple events throughout Northern New Mexico and Houston, Texas, spearheads these experiential dining events.
edible was fortunate enough to attend one of their most recent events hosted by the creators of Meow Wolf, Santa Fe’s latest installation art center. This immersive dinner featured Chef David Gaspar de Alba, the current resident chef and farmer at Silver Leaf Farms, and seven different culinary creations envisioned by him.
The night started off with gourmet popcorn, a fruit cooler and a coffee-infused tequila snow cone as we waited to enter this underground dining experience. We were quickly hustled through the main entrance of the ‘house’ and taken through the fireplace and brought to the ‘Enchanting Glow Forest’ for our first bite of the night. Chef Gaspar de Alba treated us to the first two courses while Natalie Bovis of The Liquid Muse crafted a lemon-ginger cocktail with OM Spirits.
Afterward, we were given free range to navigate the rest of The House of No Return with a crypto-coaster map puzzle designed by Jared Tarbell of Levitated Toy Factory. For the next hour, we explored the depths of Meow Wolf and completed our puzzles with help from local New Mexico businesses: Silver Leaf Farms, OM Spirits, Cheesemongers of Santa Fe and Cloud Cliff Bakery.
The event concluded with the final two courses and a special thank you from founder, Brandon Gregoire and Chef David Gaspar de Alba and a barista presentation from Iconik Coffee Roasters featuring their slow-pour brew. This was a perfect night-cap for everyone.
