First Look: Mothership at Earthbound Beer

Friday, December 1st, 2017



Mothership has landed inside Earthbound Beer at 2724 Cherokee St. The new food program, run by Vista Ramen’s Josh Adams, starts serving Asian-inspired barbecue tonight, Friday, Dec. 1, inside the recently expanded brewery.

“We didn’t want to take Vista and just move it down here,” said chef-owner Chris Bork. He and Adams worked to develop smoke-heavy dishes better suited to a brewery than a ramen shop. Dishes include a smoked kielbasa and a pulled pork barbecue plate that comes with two of three classic side options: potato salad, slaw or baked beans.

“It’s beer food,” Adams said. “We’re doing barbecue, but we’re still Vista.” That means the potato salad is made with Kewpie mayo and funky, salty Hondashi broth, and the bricks of slightly sweet cornbread on the menu come with gochujang butter.

Other surprises include the house-smoked turkey dish that leans Mediterranean, served sliced on a pita topped with yogurt, crisp house pickles and a sprinkle of sumac. Customers place their counter-service order at the bar while scoping out their next beers.

Mothership will be open inside Earthbound Beer Tuesday to Sunday from 5 to 10 p.m. Here’s a first look at the menu:

Watch one NYC food blogger describe what he calls “Modern Midwestern Cuisine”

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

110311_videoNext Wednesday, Niche‘s Gerard Craft will be joining Justin Aprahamian of Sanford in Milwaukee; Michael Bulkowski of Revolver in Findlay, Ohio; Josh Adams of June in Peoria, Ill.; and Bruce Sherman of North Pond in Chicago; for a farm-to-table dinner at Sherman’s North Pond. While this is a small roll call of renowned regional chefs, the most interesting part of this dinner may not be the meal itself but the meaning behind it. How so? New York blogger and author Steve Plotnicki is offering up an intriguing (if somewhat ambiguous) answer to Grub Street Chicago.

Plotnicki believes these five individuals represent a group of young chefs who are returning to their hometowns after working in some of the best kitchens in America to open up their own farm-to-table restaurants. The result, he said, is dishes that are more “full flavored” and a cuisine that’s less “cheffy” than that found in restaurants on the coasts.

While Craft doesn’t quite fall into the category of those returning to their hometowns to open up restaurants all their own (He grew up in D.C.), it’s still interesting to hear how Plotnicki speaks of this new Midwestern category of cuisine. Want proof? Watch him (somewhat) explain it here.
