We had an awesome evening at The Great Northern K’óoben pop-up at Glass House.

A collaboration between chefs Gustavo Romero (Nixta), José Alarcón (Centro, Vivir), and Noe Lara (BLVD) accompanied by mixologists Mike Hidalgo (Sonora Kitchen), Daniel Guerrero (Colita), and Daniel D Torres (Iconos Gastro Cantina), food collective K’óoben (Mayan for “kitchen” or “stove”) describes itself as “a space that belongs to everyone but does not belong to anyone—a sacred place for Mexican families, meeting point of collaboration and coexistence with family and friends, with one goal: to keep alive the roots of Mexican & Latin cuisine.”

Join us for the collective’s 5th pop-up experience, featuring guest chefs Nettie Colon (Red Hen Gastro Lab), Pedro Wolcott (Guacaya Bistreaux) and Soleil Ramirez (Arepa Bar), who will explore what it means to be crafting and cooking Latin cuisine in the middle of winter in Minnesota. The evening includes mouthwatering food and chef stations, three specialty beverages, a mezcal/tequila tasting, live artwork by Gustavo Lira Garcia, and performances by DJ Yalen Villalobos and Huehuecoyotl Collective — a three-piece group incorporating pre-Hispanic instruments and live electronic manipulation.

Every dish and drink was amazing. All of these places should be on your lists of places to visit in the Twin Cities.
