Ribelle’s Next ‘Rabble-Rouser’ Dinner Stars A Hotshot Indy Chef

Jonathan Brooks of brunch destination Milktooth is Food & Wine's first-ever Best New Chef who doesn't serve dinner. He'll take on that meal with Tim Maslow—but with a stripped-down challenge.

For the third installment of Ribelle’s star-studded Rabble-Rouser Dinner series, brunch master Jonathan Brooks and pastry chef Zoe Taylor of Indiapolis’ buzzy Milktooth join chef Tim Maslow in the kitchen for a simple spectacle. It Takes Two challenges the chefs to create courses with only two ingredients. The team hasn’t revealed what the elements will be. Maple syrup and an egg, perhaps? Milktooth landed on Bon Appétit‘s Top 10 Best New Restaurants list this year with its innovative approach to the most important meal of the day—picture a fried mortadella dutch baby pancake with sharp cheddar, dried cranberry chutney, and arugula. Brooks also joins Maslow in this year’s Food & Wine Best New Chefs class; the Indianapolitan is the first-ever designee who doesn’t serve dinner at his restaurant.

There will be two seatings for the nine-course meal in Brookline. Tickets went on sale this afternoon, and they’ll likely go pretty quickly.

$130, Tuesday, November 10, 6 or 8:30 p.m., Ribelle, 1665 Beacon St., Brookline, 617-232-2322, eventbrite.com.
