Bloomington food news: B-Town Diner, Chef's Table, Lucky Express – The Herald-Times

One World KitchenShare pop-up dinners are returning. These one-time dinners feature cuisine crafted by local chefs. They were happening monthly at the facility, 2361 W. Rappel Drive, until COVID-19 broke out a couple of years ago.
The first chefs to share their fare with guests will be Clard and Tiffany Davidson, owners of Chef’s Table Catering. The event will be 6-9 p.m. June 22. The meal is served family-style and is BYOB. Tickets are available online at Seats are limited.
The meal begins with a spring salad with sliced oranges, onions, cucumbers, goat cheese and Champagne vinaigrette and is followed with an appetizer of seared ahi tuna. Next up is lobster and scallop risotto, followed by seared duck breast with wild mushrooms, red wine demi-glace, served with garlic mashed potatoes. Dessert is apple pie cheesecake with bourbon-glazed apples.
Since it opened in March 2014, B-Town Diner has served Bloomington residents, Indiana University students and a bunch of visitors at 211 N. Walnut St. The breakfast and lunch joint announced recently on social media it will be closing “some time before the end of July.” The post says the “astronomical inflation rates” after COVID-19 were too much.
Current owners Jason and Meranda Bush also said they are proud to employ people in recovery.
It’s relatively common for Bloomington restaurateurs to take a break while students are away for summer.
Some customers didn’t get the message that Lucky Express, the Chinese restaurant at 307 E. Third St., was closing this summer so its owners could travel to visit family. Although no exact date was given for when business will resume, this isn’t the first time the restaurant has closed for a time.
Best Taste, 109 W. Fourth St., is also closed right now.
