The Washington Post ran a photo gallery this week of a local hostess who is running a supper club out of her home. On the one hand, it is enterprising and given her talent with her native dishes, fascinating and a culturally rich opportunity. On the other hand, the concept of charging guests to come into my home and eat at my table struck me as tasteless: Some things are not for sale. Finally still, there is this very positive, promising idea that it brings together people who would not otherwise gather around a table in a culture which rings with, "Ugh, I don't feel like going..." in the moments before a dinner gathering at the home of a friend.
I wonder what you think?
A peek inside an underground restaurant
Unlicensed and under-the-radar restaurants have long prospered overseas, but the trend is now gaining steam in Washington. A hostess who goes by the name of Geeta runs one such establishment, Hush Supper Club, out of her home in Northwest Washington.
