The dinner was a Japanese-inspired six-course meal made by a chef in Brooklyn. The sample menu included dishes like “steamed silken tofu with edamame sauce” and “stuffed potato ball in Dashi soup” and a roasted green tea crème brûlée for dessert. For a night out in New York City, the $57 price tag was a steal. I signed up for one of the limited spots and received an email telling me the full address of the dinner, and a note —€” in all caps — that shoes were not allowed inside. But then, the morning of the dinner, the event was cancelled by the chef. She wrote that it was her “sincere regret” to cancel because she hadn’t reached the minimum number of reservations needed to host the meal.
