Think about this:

Out-of-work chef. A popular cafe open for breakfast and lunch.

The chef comes in four nights a week to serve dinner.

That deal starts Wednesday, June 25 at Green Bean Coffee (358 Righters Mill Rd. in Gladwyne, 610-658-7276) as cafe owner Tammin Kim brings in the well-traveled chef Clark Gilbert (Bisou, Gemelli, the Four Seasons, Restaurant Taquet).

Gilbert will prepare a nine-course tasting menu, changing every two weeks, Tuesdays through Fridays (private parties Saturdays). It's reservation only, BYOB and $80 a head plus tax and tip.

And "interactive," Gilbert said. "We're plating food right in front of guests in a relaxed, intimate setting." The idea, he said, is to create a dinner-party atmosphere.

Here's the opening menu (it's a JPG).
