Emulsion is a combination of the culinary minds of Peter McQuaid, David Brito, and Sheila Mae Rendon. All with diverse culinary backgrounds we want to give you a dining experience unlike any other. For the time being, Emulsion will consist of a series of pop-up restaurants each unique and completely chef driven. Emulsion pop-ups will be the start of something much greater. Book your experience now and we look forward to taking you on our culinary journey. 

Emulsion Popup: Childhood will take you through a 6-course tasting menu along with equisite wine pairings. You will be transported back into the memories of your childhood, where life was full of joy and laughter. With wines from James V. Monaci of MontiEnoteca you will be in for an amazing evening. Please be our guests where the kids menu has no age limit and experience what we at Emulison have to offer. Head over to emulsionpopup.com for more info. Thank you for your support! Cheers!
