I just got an email from Keren Brown of Foodportunity detailing an enticing offer for anyone anxious to try Tom Douglas’s three forthcoming restaurant concepts before they even open.

The restaurants are part of Amazon’s new South Lake Union campus and will all be housed in a Terry Avenue building between Thomas and Harrison streets. They are to be called Cuoco, Brave Horse Tavern, and Ting Momo. Cuoco will be an Italian pasta spot, Brave Horse is a tavern, of course, with 26 beer taps and its own pretzel oven, and the concept at Ting Momo is a "Tibetan dumpling cafe." Interesting.

Over three nights in March, the chefs at the new restaurants will convert Palace Ballroom—TD’s Belltown event space—into a test kitchen, and you’re invited to try the results. On Thursday, March 10, sample pastas from Cuoco. On Friday, March 18 it’s dishes from Brave Horse Tavern, and on Saturday, March 19 the Ting Momo chefs will show off their stuff.

Each session is limited to 60 guests and begins at 6pm. The cost is $25 per person—that buys you five sample dishes and a glass of wine. Pretty good deal!
