One of our favorite New Yorkers is Jeff Stark, an underground instigator of theatrical events that take place in secret, unauthorized locations. In the past, Stark has staged site-specific plays in crumbling old factories, subway tunnels, and inside moving trains. The protean Brooklynite also curates the indispensible Nonsense NYC event mailer, has a hand in the creative goings-on at Rubulad, and is known for hosting elaborate secret dinner parties in unusual locations. His latest culinary creation took place Saturday night, when he served a four-course dinner on the roof of a rusting industrial building somewhere in in Queens.

The guests were two people who commissioned the dinner as a reward for donating to a Rubulad Kickstarter campaign. The four hour affair was no easy feat: the guests and crew had to climb a long ladder to get to the roof, and Stark tells us, "To get to the location, which was near the Brooklyn-Queens border, we crossed train tracks and ducked through fences. The 60-foot ladder to the roof had a steel safety guard, which was certainly safer, but prevented us from carrying anything on the ladder. that meant that the first 30 minutes of the event we sent up the table, chairs, tripod, cooler, and food up a rope, hand over hand to the top floor."

Stark prepared the dinner for Tetsu Ohara and his wife Anja Olbrisch, who met at Rubulad, and this weekend they celebrated their third anniversary. "I was told what subway stop to go to," Ohara tells us. "And then Jeff asked me a series of questions, like 'Can you be alone in the dark?' and 'Can you handle heights?' I can't tell you where the dinner took place, but it was an old industrial area by a graveyard. It was incredible—like dining in a fine restaurant with beautiful music in the background and an incredible view of midtown."

The menu: Chilled zucchini soup with peppered croutons, white bean hummus bruschetta, zucchini and basil salad with toasted pine nuts and parmesan flakes, bay scallops on spinach and watercress with a citrus-sherry vinaigrette, and for dessert a chocolate mousse and strong black coffee. We're jealous! Stark occasionally organizes larger secret dinners with groups of 40 in unusual, off-limits locations—they're invite only, but we suggest subscribing to Nonsense NYC; you never know what you'll catch wind of.
