The Eye Eaters Society - a not-so-secret society bringing together

culinary and visual artists to create elevated social gatherings



Join the Eye Eaters Society for Plate Art, our first foray into digital gatherings, with Chef Edward Kim of Mott St on Wednesday, July 1. Together we'll learn to plate a wildly imaginative supper drawing inspiration from the likes of Jackson Pollock. 

The Plate Art meal kit comes complete with all the elements needed for Chef Edward Kim's Faroe Island Salmon, a palette of ingredients - yuzu pesto, red miso, bronze fennel, and gochugaru to name a few. After 10 minutes of at-home prep, we'll link up on Instagram Live at 7pm for a discussion and step-by-step tutorial of the art of plating using gorgeous plates from our friends at CB2 as the canvas.


We'll also dive into a Muscadet from the Loire Valley with Mott St Beverage Director Trevin Cox  on Instagram Live at 6pm with stunning glassware from the folks at CB2. And don't forget to wear all black from head to toe in your own personal style!


A portion of Plate Art proceeds will benefit the Okra Project, a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People.


Mott St serves Asian American feast-style dining in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. Pairing Eastern cooking techniques with an eclectic beverage program, Chef Edward Kim juxtaposes the flavors of his childhood with the textures of his wide-ranging training for a vividly imaginative menu. The lively communal dining room and bar is anchored by an open pantry and butcher block tables, offering a view behind the scenes.
