Night Court

Hot Luck reimagines the 1980s mall food court with some of the most inspiring chefs in America who have been challenged to create their own food court concept that will live for one night only. A Hot Luck food court means Thai barbecue by chicken wing impresario Andy Ricker (Pok Pok, PDX and NYC), a ramen joint by noodle legend Ivan Orkin (Ivan Ramen, NYC), a burger-themed tribute to legendary food writer Josh Ozersky by meat maven John Tesar (Knife, Dallas), and a sweet shop by Austin pastry ace Laura Sawicki (Launderette, Austin). Come help us relive the place where we’d share food, trade gossip and hand draw emojis in real time.
