We believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy an elegant fine-dining experience, but not everyone can afford to. We are a monthly in-home pop-up fine dining restaurant designed to bless single moms, homeless persons, refugees, and even pastors and their wives for an elegant evening to remember. 

What We Do

Fine Dining


We are serious about loving our neighbor, and believe that it is better to give than to receive. Our goal is to serve our guests with our whole hearts, in hopes to bless them with an evening they'll never forget. 

Nothing brings people together like a food. We want to offer a complete four-course gourmet fine-dining experience to people like single moms, refugees, widows, and more. 

We want our events to be memorable, and to be used as opportunities to establish deep connections and relationships for ongoing support. We value community, and hope to use our events as a bridge to help build just that. 


The Chefs

Joe and Miranda Crenshaw are the Founders of Light Up The City ministries. Not only do they have a passion for street ministry, but they have top quality skills in the kitchen. Their hospitable hearts, coupled with their culinary skills will help create a memorable fine-dining experience for those who wouldn't normally get to enjoy a meal like this. Like their relationship, Joe is in charge of all thing salty and Miranda is in charge of the sweets.

An Evening To Remember 

More than just enjoying the gourmet cuisine next to like-minded community, we want our guests to have a memorable evening. That's why we offer these amenities that will only add to the elegant experience. 


Miranda is also a professional photographer. In addition to the fine-dining experience, each guest will receive a professionally-edited photo album filled with photos from the evening. 


Joe is a gifted worship leader and musician. Once his chef responsibilities are complete, he will be playing live music for the guests during dessert.
