This week’s official Food News comes via Pitchfork.com and courtesy Huffington Post reports. Seems that a Detroit-based chef named Kyle Handley will host a pop-up restaurant event he’s calling “A Night With Kid A”, and the Wednesday night dinner will feature a Radiohead-themed meal—each course corresponding, in some manner known only to Handley, with a Kid A track. Yeah, it’s that tenuous a gimmick. Dig in, punters.
