Tinks’s House

Tinks’s House

The Project

A dinning experience where diners move as a group from room-to-room, eating a different course in each. Our goal: to reconstruct the familiar feeling and tastes of home in an unfamiliar way.

To build Tink’s House, we transformed an abandoned, rundown house near downtown into an art installation + pop-up restaurant. Four rooms rebuilt to simulate the textures and sensations of home: den, dining room, kitchen, and bedroom.

The Press

Tink's house was sold out every night of its two-month run, and was reviewed by the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Magazine, NPR. See excerpts below:

"An excellent dinner idea for your art-gallery-hopping friends or art-loving significant other who doesn’t quite understand your food obsession. Both of you will have your way at Tink’s House." —Los Angeles Times

"It's gotten a ton of attention in LA, which is deserved because it lives up to its billing as an immersive dining experience where food, art and design come together."—Epicurious

"Like walking into a trippy dream by Brian Wilson" —"Take Two" on KPCC, NPR

"Tink’s house ended, and as I walked away, I thought I might never have such a unique dining experience." —The Hundreds

"All Pop-ups should be this creative." —EatingLA

"Haven't been that inspired in a long time. Get To It LA!" Jessica Koslow, Chef/Owner of SQIRL

The Food & Space

The menu was designed to evoke memories from each of the four rooms: crispy & crumby in the den; rigid & formal in the dining room; discovery & experimentation in the kitchen; sensual & comforting in the bedroom.
