Hollywood’s Fiery ‘Torched’ Pop-Up Is Lighting Up L.A.’s Dining Scene This Summer

Get a taste of blazing gourmet cuisine with a vintage garage twist at the ‘Torched’ dining experience!

While the hospitality industry has been a little quieter than usual, Gastro Garage has been reigniting the scene at W Hollywood with a culinary spectacle that’s keeping the city aglow. The popular ‘Torched’ pop-up experience serves up dinner and a show as chefs (or “gastro mechanics”) cook your meal in front of you using industrial-sized torches! Think vintage-style garage workmen toasting upscale fare to perfection with blowtorches, in a luxurious outdoor setting.

After dazzling guests last fall with a warm-up round of fiery dining theatrics scored to the tune of 80s anthems, the Gastro Garage team has decided to extend the experience through this summer. (Although, we foresee yet another extension due to popular demand at this trendy L.A. venue!)

Your intimate dinner experience entails an 8-course “Mechanics Menu,” featuring the signature dishes like Gastro Tanks (brioche-style donuts) and Drill Bits (which involves marinated salmon or Japanese short rib roasted while rotating on industrial drill bits). And, of course, it’ll all be prepared by your own personal gastro mechanic donning industrial worker’s gloves!

For your warm up round, you can throw back a shot of Bulleit and sip on a smokin’ seasonal cocktail. Plus you’ll get an additional cocktail if you book through Fever. If you’re still thirsty after that, you can refuel with a Spiced Apple Cinnamon Margarita and other craft beverages available from the cash bar.

Save room for the Fireberry Gastro Tank which consists of a delicate, sweet cream cheese foam with glazed balsamic strawberries topped with freshly cracked black pepper. 

‘Torched’ is where fine-dining meets Rock ‘n’ Roll and it’s the hottest show you’ll see this fall!

Book your seat at the dinner table and get Torched!
