Diving Horse’s Palmer Marinelli Is Planning a Pop-Up


Palmer Marinelli has been spending his summer in the kitchen at the Diving Horse in Avalon. This September he’s going to be doing something a little more personal. On Monday, September 30th, the Pub & Kitchen vet is hosting a pop-up at Little Fish. Marinellis is calling the event Pink Rose after his grandmother. The menu will be inspired by restaurants in Puglia, Italy, the region his grandmother was from. The dinner begins with an antipasti which Marinelli describes as “an intense sprint of shared plates” followed by pasta, main course, cheese and dessert. Expect other extras like cocktails, digestives, coffee and even baked breakfast goods to take home for the next day.

The dinner is BYO and there will be two seatings at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. The experience is $100 per person and includes gratuity.  Reservations can be made by emailing PinkRosePopUp@gmail.com.
