June 30th, 2011—New York, NY—Gilt City (www.giltcity.com), the definitive online lifestyle destination, will be partnering with Chefs Michael Schlow and Geoffrey Zakarian to bring its first Pop-Up Restaurant to Boston’s Fenway Park. This unique dining concept will launch on July 11 and run through July 15.

Gilt City’s Fenway Pop-Up will kick-off with a VIP night beginning with cocktails on the field followed by a seated dinner for guests in the Double Suite. Each of the four nights following the launch, cocktails will be served on The Green Monster with dinner for an intimate dinner for members in the Double Suite.

“As a native Bostonian, I am personally very excited to be hosting Gilt City’s first Pop-Up Restaurant at Fenway Park, said Nate Richardson, President, Gilt City. “If there are two things that the city of Boston is passionate about, it’s food and the Red Sox. By matching the culinary talents of Chefs Michael Schlow and Geoffrey Zakarian with such an iconic city landmark, we’re providing our members a truly unique dining experience and a chance for them to get out and love their city more.”

Chefs Michael Schlow and Geoffrey Zakarian have created an exciting menu for members to enjoy inspired by seasonal ingredients and Boston’s love of seafood. Guests will enjoy a selection of passed hors d’oeuvres followed by a four-course seated dinner.

"Growing up outside of Boston, I have great memories of attending games at Fenway Park. It is such a special place, and working on this Pop-Up Restaurant has been an honor,” said Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. “Collaborating with Gilt City to customize this unique experience and working with my dear friend Michael Schlow to bring a meal to life is truly an incredible moment in my career.” Gilt City’s Fenway Pop-Up Restaurant will be available to Gilt City members beginning on Thursday, June 30th with tickets priced at $200 each.
