Eric Korn is best known for his boutique catering business, which crafts custom dishes for weddings and other private events in Manhattan, the Hudson Valley and Connecticut.

Never been to a Good-Life Gourmet event? For three nights the chef behind the popular catering group wants to cook a family-style meal for those who haven’t experienced his cuisine yet.

From January 16 through 18, Good-Life Gourmet is hosting a pop up restaurant in Irvington’s Cupcake Kitchen. Chef Korn is calling the pop up “Restaurant Maize,” and will be serving traditional Mexican dishes with an upscale twist.good-life gourmet chef eric korn

Good-Life Gourmet is one of Westchester’s most popular caterers, so if you want to sample some of Korn’s cooking, you’ll have to act fast. Saturday night is completely sold out, but reservations are still available for Friday and booking quickly.

Seatings are at 7 and 8:30 p.m. each night for the three-course a la carte menu which includes dishes like pecan soup, made with candied pecans, pickled jalapeno, crema and roasted chiles, fried red snapper tacos and duck mole with corn pudding, sautéed greens, crispy mushrooms, fresh avocado and mole. 

Each course will be served family-style, on hand-carved woods boards. And a dessert platter will feature chef Korn’s flan, churros and salted fruit.

For $85 per person, guests can purchase a ticket to the chef’s table. Five seats will be available for anyone who wants to chat with the chef and sample things from the entire menu.
