Austin chef Page Pressley announced the launch May 7 of his new concept, Foxtail Supper Club.

Guests sign up for a time slot, receive a box of fresh ingredients, including an optional wine pairing, and finish preparing the food with other diners and the chef. Guests can then drop off to eat the meal or stay on with their new dinner companions.

Pressley said he was initially going to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant on South First Street but shifted gears to the new concept, allowing him to cook and be part of the dining experience.

"We wanted to provide a space where people could go and enjoy an immersive dining experience as a small but powerful collective," Pressley said in a release. "We wanted to create a place where it truly was a special occasion, no matter if you go once a year or once a week."

Foxtail boxes are available through Assembly Kitchen, the meal delivery service from the team behind Comedor, for $150 per box.


Pressley's career has included stops at Uchi and Uchiko, Emmer & Rye and most recently, Swedish Hill, as executive chef. www.foxtailsupper.com
