Habibi Sofra Club: Chef Mei Lin
The Habibi Sofra Club will begin with Top Chef season 12 winner and L.A.-based chef Mei Lin of Daybird, and will feature a collaborative tasting menu prepared alongside Rafidi and served during dinner at Albi. From 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Lin will offer a special pita sandwich at Yellow, the restaurant’s adjacent cafe, pulling inspiration from the menu at her new fried chicken sandwich shop. The evening’s menu will blend culinary perspectives from both chefs, with snacks, small plates and desserts steeped in Lin’s Asian heritage, and a selection of spreads, pita, and meats cooked over coals that introduce Rafidi’s Levantine flavors. For each dinner, wine director William Simons and the beverage team at Albi will curate a unique offering of wines and cocktails designed to complement the visiting chef’s culinary style, while staying true to the character and irreverence of the restaurant’s noteworthy beverage program. Tickets for the debut dinner with Rafidi and Lin are $150 per person. Dinner will be served from 5:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. To reserve your spot and for more information please click here.
