Scrambled Eggman and Wallrus

New gallery invests in the art of food.

One would be hard-pressed to find a premier Santa Fe chef who doesn't consider his or her food to be art. The folks at new experimental gallery Eggman and Walrus hope to permanently forge that food and fine-art alliance, with artist roundtables in which local chefs and artists get together with the public for many-course meals and art conversation.

For the first iteration,  Milagro 139 chef Fernando Ruiz collaborates with artist and Eggman and Walrus owner Evan Glassman for a meal centered on the great American buffalo.

The first collaboration's tentative menu includes: a wild-mint mojito aperitif; watermelon gazpacho shooter; organic baby arugula/spinach/chard salad with queso fresco, red onion in a pomegranate vinaigrette; organic New Mexican buffalo tenderloin and short rib with a celery root, basil, arugula pesto mash, topped with an ancho chile demi glaze, and sauteed chard/spinach; chef's surprise; and vanilla bean flan. See RSVP info below.

Not much is set in stone regarding the event's continuation—not the place, not the food, not the theme—but rather, each event is open to experimentation. Performances and community art projects are in the forecast. The seating will be communal to foster conversation. Each event will be $30-$80 per person, with discounts for students and artists. The events are BYOB, with wine pairings suggested beforehand.

Glassman also anticipates a less expensive take on the event in the form of themed pot lucks (bring food to serve at least five, or $15).

SFR will be on hand at the first roundtable, so expect photos/commentary after the event.
